Cohen said, "My focus as chairman for 2013 will be to expand the DSF's presence through both organizational and individual membership, as well as build on the legacy of past leadership by offering even greater value and services to our members. DSF members were more engaged in this recent election than ever before, which I believe is both a direct reflection of the quality of the candidates that offered to serve, as well as the level of passion and involvement of DSF members themselves. Your board looks forward to serving you in 2013."
