Erin Martin from the Central Region and Earl McKinney from the Northwest Region won reelection to the WARWS Board of Directors at the 26th Annual Association Business meeting held on April 21. Later that day during the Spring Board of Directors meeting, the board elected the following board members to leadership positions. Erin Martin was elected President of the Association Board of Directors; Chuck McVey was reelected Vice President; Ron Overson was elected Secretary/Treasurer and Earl McKinney was reelected as our NRWA National Director.
Former longtime President Loren Crain removed his name from consideration for the Presidency requesting a break and time for personal commitments. Loren remains a Director of the Board of Directors.
We want to Thank Loren for his many years of service as President of the Association. His nearly 24 years of service to the Association has helped us grow and mature as an organization. His leadership paved the way for our little group growing from 1 circuit rider in 1989 to a staff of 9 today. From the humble beginnings of about 100 people attending the first annual Spring Training Conference in 1991 to over 550 industry professionals attending this past weeks 26th annual conference, Loren has given his time and treasure to the Association. As Loren said, “this is not goodbye, just taking a break from leadership”.
