Here's the New Board

(almost) Same as the Old Board

Your new 2022-2023 board is familiar, with women you already know! All positions were voted in unanimously.

The association president is selected by the club board members. Our new 2022-2023 president is Ro Terra. Congratulations Ro!

Two officially recognized positions were Membership with Joan Ulrich and Secretary with Heather Rush. They have already been serving in these roles due to the attrition of previously elected members. 

Board members can now recruit committee members to support their activities in service of the club. Committee members are not elected. This provides for training of potential new board members to run in the future and continuity if a board member is unable to serve during her elected term. 

The 2022-2023 Board members are:

  • Membership
  • Photographer
  • Programs / Small Groups
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Webmaster
  • Joan Ulrich
  • Candis Mason
  • Mary Goiran
  • Heather Rush
  • Eileen Kollar
  • Sherry Rehm

Elections are held in odd-numbered years; the officers are elected for a two-year period starting in January of the year following the election.

Special thanks to our outgoing president Laura Hunt. Laura’s tenure was largely consumed by the pandemic and she worked tirelessly to ensure that the club was positioned to thrive as we re-enter more normal life. Laura will continue on the board as our ambassador and historian.
