December 1st Election

It’s long after December 1st, yes I know, but with the season winding down and the holidays upon us we’ve all been so busy! The December 1st election sees Ashleigh Dickins (hey that’s me!), GiavannaMarie Melody and Sally LaSalle joining Abel Halderman and Desirae Beaumont on the board. Sally LaSalle had been serving as an interim director after Robin Mapp left the board in October, 2009; and prior to that had served two consecutive six month terms from June 1, 2008 through June 1, 2009. Ashleigh Dickins prior served a six month term from June 1, 2008 through December 1, 2008 and returns for another six month term. This is GiavannaMarie Melody’s first term on the board. In addition to Robin Mapp the Board also says “So Long (and thanks for all the fish!)” to Bonheur Chenaux and WickedV Carver. Thanks for the great work guys!

Welcome New Directors!

On June 1, 2009, SLSA held an election for three open spots on the SLSA Board of Directors. Six candidates signed up for the election and 41 SLSA eligible voters participated in the vote. The newly elected directors are: WickedV Carver, Bonheur Chenaux and Robin Mapp. They replace retiring Sally LaSalle, Colleen Brennan and Robbin Ember on the Board, and join VW Sands and Abel Halderman for a full 6 month director SLSA Board term.

Congratulations and thanks!
