On behalf of the Board, Nominating Committee, and staff, I would like to congratulate Sally Burnett and Ron Day, who have been elected to three-year terms starting January 2, 2023. I would also like to announce that KC Kendall has been appointed to a three-year term starting January 2, 2023. A total of 3,513 votes were cast via 1,298 online ballots, and the results of the 2023 Board election were validated by Olsen Thielen, our external auditors.
These Board changes are in keeping with the AAW bylaws, which state: “In each election, the two candidates receiving the most votes by those casting ballots will serve for three years. The third Board Member will be appointed by 2/3 majority vote of the Board of Directors.” The ability to appoint one Board member helps to ensure a healthy diversity of talent, so that all areas of expertise remain fulfilled. Also consistent with our bylaws, the Board appoints members to fill and complete unexpired terms as needed.
AAW Executive Director
