*In January of 2023, Joe Freeman stepped down from his Executive Board position. Per the by-laws, the President, Paul Welsh, with the approval of the Executive Board, appointed April to take Joe’s place for the remainder of this year. As is tradition, April will then be single-slated on the upcoming ballot so that she may finish Joe’s term and the good work already in progress.
