We are excited to have Sarah on board. Sarah recently retired from her management position in Human Resources. She brings much insight and new ideas for leadership development opportunities.
You may have noticed that long-time board member, Mark Brogan, was missing from this year's board slate. Mark left the city, and so the board. His positive energy and willingness to help in any way has already been missed, but we hope to continue to see him at upcoming events.
Also absent was Lenka Wright. Our past president moved to live in Washington. Her leadership was invaluable and we miss her greatly!
