Matt Andrews, Associate Regional Director for IMBA’s Midwest Region, met with some members of the CROCT Board on Monday to explain IMBA’s Chapter Program. He was somewhat more than marginally adequate. (I’ve gotten to know Matt as a MORC board member as he’s also MORC’s Executive Director.)
We’ll likely vote on whether or not to become a Chapter at our next Board meeting on May 5.
At our April meeting tonight, the people who showed up formed the 2014 CROCT Board of Directors and elected Board officers. More details forthcoming from our new Secretary, but in the meantime, here’s who’s who:
Carl Arnold, Treasurer
Marty Larson, Chair
Curtis Ness, Secretary
Griff Wigley, Vice-Chair
2014 CROCT Board officers, L to R: Marty Larson, Griff Wigley, Curtis Ness, Carl Arnold
Other CROCT board members, L to R: Jeremy Bokman, Sarah Jansen, Scott Koehler, Galen Murray
