Announcing our 2015 Officers

As Nominations Chairperson, I am pleased to announce our chapter’s leaders for 2015, following a tally of the responses to our election survey, which was managed by Survey Monkey. The election survey was open from October 14, 2014 to November 3, 2014. Of the 234 people invited to participate, 51 did so, a response rate of 28%.

The following chapter members will serve our chapter from January 1 to December 31, 2015.

President: Sean Stevenson
1st Vice President and Events Committee Manager: Liz Herman
2nd Vice President and Membership Manager: Becky Todd
Treasurer: Annette Reilly
Secretary: Lori Meyer
Director-at-Large and Social Media Manager: Viqui Dill
Director-at-Large and Webmaster: Cynthia A. Lockley
Director-at-Large and Competition Committee Manager: Gary Wayne

Our new officers will be supported by many of our longtime and new volunteers. Please consider joining us by contacting an officer (contact information for each officer is in the bio link above), attending an event and talking with us, or by taking a look at our Current Chapter Volunteer Openings.

Here’s to a great new year for the chapter!

UPDATE: 22 November 2014

Unfortunately, At-Large Director, Gary Wayne, has resigned for health reasons. At-Large Director, Cynthia Lockley, will fill his place as the competition manager for this year.
