Three-year board member for the Long Island Music Hall of Fame Ernie Canadeo was recently named the organization’s new chairman. Canadeo has a long history within the local music, advertising and non-profit business communities. In addition to LIMHF, he also sits on the board of The Long Island Association, the Thomas Hartman Foundation for Parkinson’s Research

Long Island. In 2012 Canadeo
 founded the Long Island
Digital Summit, an event that 
brings together hundreds of attendees from the nation’s top digital advertising and marketing companies.
