Assistant Treasurer Announced

I am very pleased to announce that Liz Fenner has just accepted a new position as the Eastern Division Assistant Treasurer. Dallas Coffman, Eastern Division Treasurer has been looking for an Assistant Treasurer for quite some time. When discussions began at the Eastern Division board meeting last spring, he stated that his first choice would be one of our 15 region treasurers. He continued on saying that one name came to mind, the CT Region Treasurer, Liz Fenner.  A formal search committee was formed and an extensive search ensued. 


Many candidates were carefully considered by the division’s Finance Committee (to whom our Treasurer reports). Her qualifications and Finance Committee’s endorsement were presented to ED Board of Directors and she was unanimously approved to be the Eastern Division’s first Assistant Treasurer.


Liz will continue to serve as our CT Region Treasurer.


Please congratulate Liz on this important appointment.
