Officers, Directors Chosen
For USITT Leadership

Patricia Dennis
USITT Secretary

On January 13, 2006, Secretary Patricia Dennis, joined by President John Uthoff, President-Elect Sylvia Hillyard Pannell, Director at Large Jean Montgomery, and the USITT staff met in Syracuse at the USITT Office to count the ballots for this exciting election year.

The Institute is truly grateful for those who were willing to run in this election, and also thanks members for their willingness to take the time, express preferences, and vote to determine the leadership of the organization.

Newly-elected and re-elected officers, all of whom will serve two-year terms, are: Larry Hill, Treasurer; Carl Lefko, VP Programming; Holly Monsos, VP Sections and Chapters; Bobbi Owen, VP Communications; and Dan Denhart, VP Special Operations.

Elected as Directors at Large to serve three year terms are: Leon Brauner, Richard Dunham, Debra Krajec, Mike Murphy, Donna Ruzika, and Bill Teague.

All terms of office will begin July 1, 2006. Congratulations to our new officers and Directors at Large!

Although this election cycle has just been completed, the process begins again for future officers and Directors at Large. The nominations form is available in PDF format here.

This can be downloaded, filled out, and sent to Bruce Brockman, Chair of Nominations committee, to suggest an individual to be considered for a position on the 2007 ballot.

At the Conference, members of the Nominations Committee will meet and discuss additional names of potential candidates, and determine the interest level of those whose names have been suggested. For more information on the process, contact Bruce Brockman at

Invest in the leadership of USITT!
