Last week, SWPACC wrapped up voting for its annual board elections. Six seats on the board were available with eight candidates stepping up to serve. All joint members of SWPACC and Access Fund were eligible to vote.

The newly elected board members are:

Joel Brady
Caleb Hills
Valerie Kramer
Makenzie O’Connor
Marcus Shoffner
Mike Varlotta

Congratulations and thank you for making this commitment to the organization!

Their official term will begin this December, at the Dec. 11 board meeting. They will join five current board members to comprise an 11-member board of directors–along with the dozens of volunteers supporting our committees and events!

SWPACC sincerely thanks our outgoing board members for their service:

Dr. Bob Coblentz
Ru Emmons
Jennifer Flaggs
Stephen Gian

Thank you for your time, dedication, and contributions to this organization over the years.

And finally, thank you to all  of the candidates who nominated themselves for the board – we appreciate you taking the time to be part of this process. We welcome you to stay involved!
