The Delegate Assembly is held every spring, and major chapter business is conducted at this event. Each year the chapter positions open for election rotate, and in 2016 the delegates elected the office of President, Vice President, Speaker of the Delegate Assembly, and a member of the Nominating Committee.
For the office of the President Michael Mattia was elected, for the office of Vice President, Tracy Sawyer was elected, and for the office of Speaker of the Delegate Assembly, Lynn Rivers was elected. Each of these three representatives are beginning their second term in these positions, and will serve through 2018. Congratulations and best of luck in your missions!
The new Nominating Committee member is Joanne Katz. Joanne will serve three years on the nominating committee, ending her service as chair of the committee. Congratulations Joanne!
