The 107IST board met on Sunday, March 24th to consider applications to fulfill the remainder of Joanne Couchman’s term. Joanne is a talented, dedicated individual who contributed a great deal to the success of the board and the organization, and the board accepted with regret her decision to resign for health reasons.
With such big shoes to fill, the board had a difficult task, so we were fortunate to have three well qualified candidates apply: Tim Chamberlin, Stephan Lewis, and William Packwood. All three had applications that demonstrated their qualifications, experience, and commitment to team, town, and TA; and two were also available for interviews on Sunday evening. The interviews were very engaging and informative, and our deliberations were lengthy. Having several highly qualified candidates is a good problem to have, and the decision was not an easy one.
Ultimately the board selected Stephan Lewis to fulfill the remainder of Joanne’s term, which expires at the end of 2013. Stephan brings a great deal of knowledge and experience: he currently serves both on the community outreach and merch committees, as well as on the Goose Hollow Foothills League Neighborhood Association. The board wishes to thank Bill Packwood and Tim Chamberlin for their willingness to serve, and we hope that they consider running during the open election process as well.
Congratulations to Stephan, and thanks to all of the candidates who were willing to be considered. Your continued commitment is appreciated.
