“On behalf of the Board of Directors, and NAGW’s membership, I want to say thank you to all of the candidates and welcome our new board members!” stated board president Ron Pringle.
“This year we saw a number of candidates run for open board seats, which is very encouraging. Though NAGW is still a relatively young organization, it’s obvious that our membership is continuing to become more involved with the organization, both at the board level and as volunteers and active members.” said Susan Christophersen, board secretary.
The newly elected and re-elected board members join current board members Ron Pringle, Aurora, IL , Region 2, Lakes, current board president; Nicole Maillet, Chesterfield County, VA, Region 4, East; and Kristy Fifelski, Reno, NV, Region 8, West; in forming the 2012 Board of Directors.
