Elected as the museum’s Vice Chair was Stephen J. Jones, senior vice president and general manager, Tonnage Gases, Equipment and Energy of Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. Prior to joining Air Products, Jones was a practicing attorney. He serves on the board of directors for the Forum for Ethics in the Workplace and on the board of governors of the Lehigh Valley Community Foundation and is a member of the President’s Advisory Council of Moravian College.

Mary M. Faust and Roberto Fischmann have joined the museum board. Faust, newly appointed president of the museum’s Society of the Arts volunteer organization will serve as an ex-officio board member. She has served on the board and as past president of the Allentown YWCA and the League of Women Voters of Lehigh County.
