Congratulations to our new incoming IVMA Vice President, Dr. Shawn Nicholson!
Dr. Nicholson was elected earlier this month and will be sworn into service at the IVMA Annual Meeting in September.
Elections were also held for IVMA Executive Board members in the even-numbered districts. The election resulted in the re-election of ten incumbent Executive Board members and two new Executive Board Members, Dr. Patrick Simonsen of Le Mars representing District 4 and Dr. Lindsay Speer of Prole representing District 18.
Because Dr. Nicholson was a member of the IVMA Executive Board at the time of his election, a temporary replacement will be appointed by the current Executive Board to fill his position as District 9 Director. This person will serve until the June 2021 Executive Board elections when all odd numbered Districts are up for election.
Two Executive Board members have chosen not to run for reelection. A special thank you to Dr. Bruce Tabke of Marcus who represented District 4 since 2013 and to Dr. Christopher Groos of Norwalk who represented District 18 since 2014.
Thank you for your service, Dr. Tabke and Dr. Groos!
Congratulations Dr. Nicholson and new and returning Executive Board members!
