Based on the recent poll, Vanessa Preast has been elected as the incoming President-elect. Sue McDaniel has been elected as the incoming secretary. Kathy Lynn has been elected as the incoming treasurer. Darrin Jones and Christina Trombley are joining us as the incoming board members to fill a two-year term and Amy MacKrell and Tricia Berry are joining us as the incoming board members to fill a three-year term. Tiffany Morgan, and Jean Hansen will continue to serve as board members. I also would like to take this opportunity to thank our outgoing board members whose terms end this year.

Thank you so much for your service and to those who continue their commitment as an active member of our association.
