Greylock appoints Anthony Rinaldi as Director Emeritus

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Greylock Federal Credit Union's Board of Directors voted unanimously to appoint Anthony Rinaldi as Director Emeritus in recognition of his longstanding and distinguished service to the credit union.
 
In March 2024, the Board of Directors voted to confer the Director Emeritus designation on Rinaldi. Individuals who are appointed Directors Emeriti function as an advisory committee to the board of directors. Rinaldi's designation reflects a two-year term.
 
"I'm honored to have served with Tony and am gratified to recognize his years of dedication and commitment to the members of Greylock," said Board Chair Peter Lopez. "We look forward to his continued involvement with the board as an esteemed advisor and Director Emeritus."
 
Rinaldi joined the board in 1994 and served as Chairman for five years. He most recently served as chair on the Asset-Liability Committee, or ALCO, and the Compensation committee.
 
"I've known Tony for many years and it's been an honor to serve with him on our board," said Board Member Sheila A. LaBarbera. "Our board has truly benefitted from Tony's tireless service, expertise, and generosity through the years and we are thrilled to honor him in this way."
 
Rinaldi recently retired from his role as the Executive Vice President of Fairview Hospital for Berkshire Health Systems. He is a graduate of Boston College School of Management with a bachelor's degree in accounting. He lives in Pittsfield with his wife, Wendy.

John Goerlach Thanked for 18 Years of Service to Lanesborough

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

LANESBOROUGH, Mass. — John Goerlach was presented with his nameplate for the Select Board and thanked for his nearly two decades of service to the town.

Monday's Select Board meeting began with a baton passing of sorts as newly elected Deborah Maynard started her term and town officials marked Goerlach's departure.

He served Lanesborough for 18 years; first elected in 2006, he did not seek re-election this year.

"You've been an influence and a mentor to me as I joined the board and I'll never forget that," Chair Michael Murphy said. "I value the friendship we've developed as well as the professional relationship."

At the annual town meeting earlier this month, voters approved an article that expands the number of Select Board members from three to five. The home-rule petition has to be approved by the Legislature and did not affect this election.

"I'm sorry you're going. When we expand to five members next year, I'd love to welcome you back," Murphy said, and Goerlach joked that he would save the nameplate for that time.

Select Board member Timothy Sorrell, the town's former police chief, has worked with Goerlach in varied capacities.

"John, it's been quite the run you and I have had over these years," he said.

"You've been a great friend, a fantastic servant to the town, and a fantastic leader. It's an honor and privilege to have known you, to be friends with you, and to work with you."
