Of 385 members who were eligible to vote and sent emails, 52 completed a ballot (13.5%). For comparison, in the 2021 election 538 ballots went out and 58 were completed (10.7%). We hope to increase both membership and voter engagement through increasing inclusivity, safety, equity, accessibility, and justice in our structures, meeting space, and the services we provide.  
Thank you to all who took part in the election and a special thank you to both the Bylaws and Nominating Committees for all of their work over the past two years.
We are planning our transition meeting for later this month and look forward to collaborating with our new executive board members. 
In service,Beth Deyermond, Outgoing Immediate Past PresidentAudrey Hausig, Incoming President
