Executive Committee election results

The top four finishers in the election for the 2016-17 term on the Executive Committee were Joanne Clarke, John Rasmussen, Trudy Tucker, and Gerald Vinnard. However, with the resignation of John Rasmussen from the Committee, Ron Martin, the fifth-place finisher was tapped by the ExCom to fill John's place. Gerald, Trudy, and Ron are returning members of the ExCom and so will be unable to run again in the 2017 election. We welcome Joanna Clarke to the Tehipite Chapter Executive Committee.

At the January 13 Executive Committee meeting, Bruce Gray was re-elected chair of the ExCom and Trudy Tucker was elected vice-chair. Brenda Markham continues as chapter secreatry, as does Wayne Dill as chapter treasurer.
