We held our Annual Membership Meeting via Zoom on June 11. Many thanks to all of you who took time to join us and vote for the board of directors candidates for our upcoming fiscal year (July 1, 2022, through June 30, 2023) and the revisions to our bylaws.
There were a few changes to the make-up of our board. After four years of serving as President of the Guild, Sue Zinngrabe Gold stepped down from this role. Since nobody volunteered to assume the President position, I agreed to serve one more time as Guild President for one year. (I served as President from 2012 to 2018).
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Sue for her years of dedication and her enormous work on behalf of the Guild, especially during these challenging COVID years. Thanks for doing such a fantastic job, Sue!. I am very happy to report that we will not lose her. Sue has agreed to remain on our board of directors, assume the role of Guild Treasurer, continue as Exhibitions Committee co-chair, Centennial Book administrator, serve on the Website Committee and compile the Guild Newsletter. All in all, she does not get much of a break, but we are very glad that she will continue to work with us on our Guild agenda.
After many years as Treasurer and Webmaster, Julianne Ricksecker has stepped down from these positions, but she will remain on the board as Member-at-Large and will still assist us with technical advice. We also owe her many thanks for all her work. Katerina Husar Lazarova is our new Webmaster.
