Hello all. The RAO election votes (106) have been tallied and the results are:
Bylaw amendments passed (86 yes, 3 no, 18 abstentions)
Kathryn Otto, University of Wisconsin-River Falls
The two new steering committee members are:
Terry Baxter, Multnomah County
Tanya Zanish-Belcher, Iowa State University
We had a really terrific slate this year and I’d like to add my personal thanks to all those of you who agreed to run. Please consider doing so again next year. Amy Schindler, whose term as chair ends this year, will be chair of the nominating committee next year and so she’s the one to contact. In the meantime, if anybody would like to get more involved in RAO, please do let someone on the Steering Committee know. Lots going on, so lots of volunteer opportunities.
The link to the current steering committee member names is on the RAO site and if you log in, you’ll see their email addresses to contact them.
Thanks to all of you who participated in the election by running for office and/or voting!
Arlene Schmuland, MA, CA
RAO 2010 Nominating Committee chair
