Jeff Ursillo

I have been involved with my local Gem & Mineral Society since 1995. In that time, I have held most elected offices and edited the Club's Newsletter, The Rockhound, for over 10 years. My daughter Jenninfer has also been involved in the Club, holding several offices including being the Club's youngest President. About 6 years ago, after the sudden demise of our Club's web master, Jen took over the job, and did a complete redesign of the site. When she was elected President, I took over as web master for her. We started entering the site in Federation competitions the next year and were happy to place in the top 3 our first year. We went on to place first in the Southeast Federation competition for three years running, and were honored in July 2014 with the First Place award in the American Federation contest! I have since stepped back from my local club duties, resigning as web master and newsletter editor. I have served as the Florida Representative for the SFMS, along with two great assistants. In January 2016, I became Editor of the SCRIBE newsletter. SCRIBE is an organization for Bulletin editors.

I am honored to have been selected to assume the role of web master for the SFMS. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns, comments, or suggestion...
