On behalf of the Board of Directors, I am pleased to announce the results of the 2017 election for the Board of Directors.
Please join me in congratulating Rick Baker, Jeff Brockett, and Kathleen Duncan. Rick will serve a three-year term on the AAW Board of Directors beginning on January 2, 2018. Kathleen and Jeff will each serve their second 3-year terms on the Board.
A total of 1,189 ballots were cast, with up to three votes allowed on each ballot, yielding 3,084 votes.
The AAW Board would like to acknowledge and thank all of the candidates. Each has dedicated countless hours to woodturning education in various volunteer roles. I encourage you to join the Board and AAW staff in expressing appreciation for their past and future service to our membership. I would also like to thank each of the members who cast ballots to express support for this essential process which sustains the leadership of our organization. Finally, I want to acknowledge AAW’s independent auditing firm, Olsen Thielen & Co., Ltd., for their diligent and thorough administration of the election process.
AAW Board of Directors
