Our 2014-2015 officers will change slightly. Here is an overview of those changes.
President and Past President: Brad Aemisegger of Toledo City SD will become President on July 1, 2014. At that time, Jeff Vrabel, Sr., of Transit Service Inc., becomes Past President.
Vice President and President-Elect: These titles will change to 2nd Vice President, and 1st Vice President, respectively. Randy Snyder of Westerville City SD was nominated and uncontested for the position of 2nd VP. Brian Whitta of Fostoria City SD will automatically become the 1st VP after having previously served as Vice President, and NW Regional Director.
Secretary-Treasurer: This position will be split to better define the individual duties of these positions, and to ensure all of the job functions are able to be completed in a timely manner.
