    We have had several changes on the Board this term.  To bring you up to date on the comings and goings:

    New to the board is Caroline Homolka-Masters (RT '84) who has been appointed to a Director at Large position.  Caroline has 30 years of professional sales experience and has served on several boards as a Fundraising Chair. We are looking forward to working with her!

    Annie Oskam (DH '72), resigned her position as Reunion Oversight Director.  Annie joined the board in 2011 as a Director at Large then took on the role of Reunion Oversight Director in 2013.  Liz Germani (RT '84), who was serving as a Director at Large, has been appointed as Annie's replacement for the remainder of this term.

    Duane Hopple also left the Board after serving since 2009, first as Database Director then Vice President.  The V.P. position is currently vacant.

    A warm "ahlaan wasahlaan" to Caroline and a big "shukran" to those departed board members for their many hours of service to the organization and to those Brats who answered our call for nominations and expressed interest in serving this next term!
