December 1, 2008, we held our most recent election to fill 3 open director positions on the board. 94 members were eligible to vote, and 24 voted. The election was made easy by having 3 awesome candidates to vote on. The result was Sally LaSalle re-elected to an additional term as director, joined by Carenahh Kuu and Mick Lunasea. Sally has a long history of leadership and experience with the SLSA. Carenahh comes to us as a former SLSA board member, surf sim owner and SLSA judge. Mick is a surf instructor, coach, team captain and ranked competitor. All 3 will bring valuable assets of experience and expertise to their term as director on the board of the SLSA.
Stepping down this term are Ashleigh Dickins and Colleen Brennan. These dedicated directors have contributed so much to the SLSA, and we look forward to their continued involvement as advisors.
Our next election will be March 1 when the director positions filled by VW Sands and Tauri Tigerpaw will be up for election. Please be sure to vote – this is your organization!
