John Engelen, chair of NCBA CLUSA’s Nominations Committee and vice president of Government Affairs for CHS, Inc. announced the results of NCBA CLUSA’s 2018 Board of Directors election at last week’s Annual Membership Meeting & Virtual Town Hall.
The following individuals were reelected to the board: Carla Decker, President and CEO of the DC Federal Credit Union; Kimberly Garmany, Executive Director of College Houses; Michelle Schry, Development Director of National Co+op Grocers and David Swanson, Partner at Dorsey & Whitney, LLP.
Filling the fifth open position on the board is Jeanne Matson, President and CEO of Starnet Commercial Flooring, a purchasing cooperative for independent commercial flooring contractors in the U.S. and Canada.
Engelen noted the common thread of participation throughout the Annual Membership Meeting was fitting, given this year’s robust slate of candidates and record number of votes. “When an organization’s members are interested and engaged in its governance, that speaks to the health of the organization,” he said. “I’m very proud of how the process went this year.”
The NCBA CLUSA Board directs and inspires the organization. The board brings consistent focus to the association’s longer-term impacts, results, purposes and future opportunities to serve the needs of its members.
