As some of you are aware, this has been a tough year for our President Julie Stanley. Difficulties in her personal and professional life have left her without the time or energy needed to meet the challenges of effectively leading the board. It was a difficult decision, but she decided it was best personally and for the club to resign from her position as president.
We would like to thank Julie for all her dedication, hard work, and impact she has made on our club over the last three years. This year alone she has put programs and policies in place that will assist future presidents become better organized, more confident, more effective leaders.
Board member positions are strictly based on volunteer work. Having the ability to put dedication and hard work into a volunteer program takes a special person. Julie is that special person, thank you Julie Stanley.

The position as Vice President will remain vacant until the 2016 elections. We are excited to see during elections who wants to help lead the greatest running club in the world!
