Election of Board Officers 2008

The OrigamiUSA Board of Directors held its election for officers on August 7, 2008. The results were as follows:

President: Wendy Zeichner
Local Vice President: Marc Kirschenbaum
Remote Vice President: Robert J. Lang
3rd Vice President: Ruthanne Bessman
Treasurer: Wendy Zeichner
Secretary: Ros Joyce

Wendy Zeichner will hold both the office of President and Treasurer (which is an allowed arrangement within the bylaws). The Board decided to elect a 3rd Vice President (which is also allowed within the bylaws) to insure that the Executive Committee, which is empowered to make certain decisions between Board meetings, would have an odd number of members, thereby preventing tied votes.
