New Board Members!

This past summer we elected four members to our Steelheader board, Brian McLachlan as our Vice President of Conversation, Stevie Parsons to the newly established Diversity and Inclusion position, Tom Vanderplaat agreed to fill the vacant Membership position, and Aaron Bento is now our Communications Director. The most exciting thing about this group is not only the enthusiasm and dedication they bring, but also the wealth of business experience and technical knowledge they have. We've never been in a better position than now to expand how we communicate and get our message out to an our expanding, and diverse population here in the Northwest.  To help everyone know our new board members, we compiled some bios about who they are, and what their goals will be. Be sure to reach out to them

I am sure you will be as excited as I am at what they have in store for the Steelheaders.
