Our speaker for August 25 will be Michael D. Connelly, M.A., J.D., FACHE, President and CEO of Mercy Health since 1995.  During that period, Mercy Health's assets have grown from $1 billion to approximately $6 billion through an innovative Co-Sponsorship Model merging five religious sponsors and several community hospitals.  MH's community benefit commitments grew during this tenure from 5% of revenue to 10.5% of revenue annually while preserving a "AA" bond rating for over 15 years.  MH is the leader in quality/safety and market share in its communities. 
Prior to joining MH, Mr. Connelly was Regional Executive/CEO, Daughters of Charity National Health System-West, Los Altos Hills, California.  He served as president and CEO of St. Joseph Hospital in Chicago, a 495- bed teaching hospital.  He also practiced law with the firm of Gardner, Carton and Douglas.  Mr. Connelly earned a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration, cum laude, and a Master's Degree in Health Services Administration from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.  He earned his J.D. Degree from DePaul University College of Law. 

Bundy Baking Solutions provides intelligent production solutions to baking challenges.  They currently provide over 90% of commercial baking pans worldwide.  They have 23 plants in North America.  Additionally, plants are located in Central America, South America and Brazil.  Total employment totals 1,000. 
Bill Bundy, who is part of the leader team at Bundy, works along with his brother and father.  They are committed to and proud of the fact that their pans are "Made in the U.S.A."  Each week five new pans are designed by engineers housed in the Urbana plant alone.  Bundy remains dedicated to re-investment and continuous improvements.  Environmental stewardship is a top priority as they strive to reduce energy consumption and reduce negative impact on our planet. 
Bundy produces many private labels for home use, and these can be found at stores such as  Williams and Sonoma, Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond.  These products are made from commercial grade materials so one can expect many years of superior performance.
We are glad that Bundy Baking Solutions has chosen Urbana, Ohio as its headquarters.
