I want to recognize and thank the Nominating Committee. They worked very hard to solicit and vet nominees to develop a slate of candidates for this year. We are incredibly grateful to have so many exceptional members serve our Association and who wanted to serve in an elected position for 2020-21. Over 50 nominees were contacted, 28 of them were vetted for candidacy, and 18 appeared on the ballot. As a volunteer-run organization, we cannot do all that we do with you. Thank you so much!
