Congratulations to Our New Board!
We are very pleased to announce the results of our Board of Directors elections. Congratulations are in order to Kellie Robinson and Michael Morisy as they will continue on the board for two-years as treasurer and director, respectively. Marianne Manheim will return to the board as vice president, and Harry Hammitt and Nick Wittenberg will join the board as directors-at-large. Harry has served on the board previously, including as president in 1992.

Hence the 2018 Board is:

Amy Bennett, President
Marianne Manheim, Vice President
Kirsten Mitchell, Secretary
Kellie Robinson, Treasurer
Scott Hodes, Immediate Past President
Jonathan Cantor, Director
Harry Hammitt, Director
James Holzer, Director
Ginger McCall, Director
Michael Morisy, Director
Nick Wittenberg, Director

Tim Graham, Amy McNulty and Nate Jones are leaving the board due to new job responsibilities and time constraints. They have been an invaluable asset to ASAP with their expertise, sound judgments and active work on various committees and in instructor roles. Tim, Amy and Nate have expressed their steadfast support for ASAP and are looking forward to volunteering for various projects as we move forward.

Thanks and congratulations to all.
