On Saturday, March 22, I participated in my last Board of Trustees meeting at the Ohio Genealogical Society Library in Bellville. My term ends with the OGS Conference next month at Kalahari Resort in Sandusky. I have been involved with OGS as a trustee for about a dozen years now, and I finally decided it was time for me to wind down this involvement.
As a result of the recent OGS election, new officers and trustees will be sworn in at the upcoming Conference.
Let me take a moment to announce and congratulate the incoming OGS officers and trustees:
President – Margaret Cheney
VP Member Services – Eric Johnson
VP Development – Don Clark
Secretary – James Mainger
Treasurer – Bob Keener
For this election, OGS used a combination of printed ballots and email ballots. As a result, the voting “turnout” was much higher than in previous elections conducted with only paper ballots. More than 625 ballots were submitted this time around.
Again, congrats to the winners. I know they will all do a fine job of running the Ohio Genealogical Society.
