As this week’s meeting wound up and another VanCore election was in the books, our fearless new leader Katherine (Kate) Hallanzy announced she was heading over to Murchie’s for tea and who would like to join her?
“Looks like the new president will bring a strong social component to the role,” Cory, the chair, noted wryly.
Kate, who speaks softly but commands much respect within the club, was a popular choice to helm the whole shebang into 2014.
“VanCore’s going great guns now,” she noted, and promised to keep the momentum going with the help of a strong executive that’s a mix of veterans — including two past presidents — and new blood.
Out-going president Connie handed over the keys to Kate with no apparent misgivings. She may even have looked a little relieved. (Driving is fun but kind of exhausting.) Victor likewise seemed pleased to be passing on the treasurer’s job – not the breezy gig he’d been led to believe — to Borzo.
To everybody’s relief, Loa, queen of all social media, will handle VP Public Relations.
Lorne Havisto will keep the trains running on time.
Niki Sarshar will woo new members and placate the current ones.
Renee was rightly recognized for the ton of energy and new ideas she brought to the club’s executive this past year.
Here is your new VanCore leadership team. Please hold your applause till the end.
President: Kate Hallanzy
VP of Education: Connie Hubbs
VP Membership: Niki Sarshar
VP Public Relations: Loa Fridfinnson
Treasurer: Borzo Salehi
Secretary: Lorne Havisto
Sergeant-at-Arms: Jonathan Buchanan
Thank you to all of you who have taken on the leadership at VanCore. All the members, so appreciate your efforts. Congratulations. Look forward to another great year.
