Our new Chair Elect is Michele (Shelley) Giaier of Bend, OR. Shelly has been active in handbell ringing and directing for many years and has also been active in the governance of other Areas. She moves from the position of Oregon Chair so .... we are looking for an Oregonian to step up to that position.
Our new Secretary is Shosh Meyer, an active ringer and director from Beaverton, OR. Shosh brings experienced secretarial skills to our board as she has been the pastoral secretary at her church for many years. Pre Covid, she has supported many west coast festivals with her time and energy.
Again thank you to David Ramsey-Warner and Julie Hunziker for volunteering to serve as Area officers. We couldn't have had an election without you! And a special note of thanks to Diane Hould, retiring Past Chair and Wendy Goodheart, retiring Secretary. We have enjoyed working with you. Please don't go too far away, we will need your advice.
Thanks to all who sent in their ballots,
