New Officers Elected for 2015, Nominations Open for 2016

USITT members have made their selections for the Board of Directors to take office in 2015. Voting closed December 10.

The following members of the Institute have been elected. The organization congratulates them and thanks them for their willingness to serve the Institute and its members. They will serve three-year terms starting July 1.

Those in officer positions are:

  • Treasurer:
    Dan Culhane (single nomination)
  • Vice-President of Communications:
    Michael Mehler
  • Vice-President for Members, Sections & Chapters:
    Andi Lyons (single nomination)
  • Vice-President for Programming:
    Kasey-Allee Foreman (single nomination)
  • Vice-President for Special Operations:
    Eric Rouse (single nomination)

Mr. Culhane is an incumbent and will serve his second three-year term.

Six others elected to the Board of Directors are:

  • Tammy Honesty
  • Jenny Kenyon
  • Linda Pisano
  • Kevin Rigdon
  • Loren Schreiber
  • Joe Tilford

Jimmie Byrd, chair of the Nominations Committee and current Secretary of the Institute, confirmed the results of voting which was conducted both online and by paper ballot for those who requested to use that method. More than 20 percent of eligible members participated in the process, a greater turnout than in many national elections.

Work is ramping up on the nominations process for the 2016 cycle. The committee shall offer nominees for the six terms on the Board of Directors which will end June 20, 2016. No officer positions are ending in this cycle, so nominations are being accepted only for the six directors.
