THE WINNERS ANNOUNCED AT LAST WEEK’S ANNUAL MEETING!
The Nominating Committee is pleased to present its slate of candidates for the Board of Trustees and the Nominating Committee. The election will be held at the Annual Meeting of the Society on June 5th.
At the Annual Meeting last Sunday the Membership elected Trustees and Members of the Nominating Committee. All candidates had been recommended for the positions by this year’s Nominating Committee.
For both the Board and NomCom there were four two-year terms filled and one one-year term to complete the service of a Member who was stepping down mid-term for personal reasons.
The Congregation elected Jonah Berquist, Rochelle Fortier Nwadibia, Lucy Smith, and Liz Strand to two-year terms on the Board of Trustees and Megan Lehmer to a one-year term. Members also elected Louise Diskerud, Gino Fortunato, Nancy Hardies, and Carrie Steere-Salazar two-year terms on the Nominating Committee and Teresa Goebel to a one-year term.
The elected representatives will take office July 1st.
The uncontested election mirrored the warm community feelings that greeted the announcement that Shulee Ong and Eric Shackelford were the 2022 Anne Dillon Award winners. The presentation of the Anne Dillon Award by Thad Smith, last year’s recipient, was a highlight of the Annual Meeting celebration.
Thad described Shulee and Eric’s extraordinary contribution to our live streaming ministry.
“Eric Shackelford was a steady and requisite presence,” praised Thad. “With his professional experience as a cameraperson at our disposal and his dependability and enormous commitment to being in the mess and necessity of it all, he was never less than full-hearted.”
“Shulee Ong was the other constant,” Thad continued, “bringing her experience in documentary filmmaking and the artistry of the camera, as well as her comfort with the technology, to our Sunday effort.”
“Together, they were the rock, the glue, the treasure we needed just when we needed them and they did not fail us,” he concluded. Read Thad’s complete message here.
Congratulations to the elected Trustees, Members of the Nominating Committee, and 2022 Anne Dillon Award winners!
