There have been several changes to our Board of Directors this year. Change can be hard, but is necessary and unavoidable in every organization. Each January, the Board of Directors elects the year’s officers. This year, Beth Hall resigned from her position as secretary and director. We will miss her, but we understand that sometimes we all need a break. Beth has been a member of the board and our secretary for several years, and we are grateful for her service.
Amy Wheeler, of Hollow Hills Ranch in Oregon, agreed to serve as an appointed director through the end of 2024. We hope she will choose to run for election to serve 2025-2029. Amy has been an active member of SCHSB since 2007. She brings a historical understanding and unique perspective since she enjoys breeding St. Croix with color. We are lucky to have her.
Officer elections took place on January 8. Your 2024 officers and directors are:
- President – Jason Webster
- Vice President & Interim Secretary – Lori Marion
- Treasurer – Crystal Criswell
- Directors – Elizabeth Hernandez, Tamara Lambdin-Abney, and Amy Wheeler
Join the Board to Fill Vacancies for 2024
We invite our members to volunteer to serve as an appointed Director for 2024 to fill our two vacant seats. The board meets on the second Monday of every month at 7:00pm Eastern. Meetings generally last one to two hours and are held virtually using Google Meet. Current projects include: the genetics study, creating SCHSB merchandise, posting articles on our website, the annual meeting, advertising and promotion, and developing educational and mentoring materials for new members. If you are interested in serving, please contact us and plan to join us at our next meeting on February 12th. We would love to have you!
Next Election Cycle for 2025-2029 Board of Directors
Thinking ahead, several of our board members’ terms expire at the end of 2024. While we hope they choose to run for re-election, we welcome nominations for new candidates who will bring fresh ideas. Nominations are due by October 1, 2024, the election will take place in December, and elected directors begin serving January 2025. If you have questions or wish to nominate someone, please contact us.
