The Installation of the Board of Directors and Chapter Officers at our January 2014 Chapter Meeting

The first photo is of Dave Nichols, ICC, swearing in the 2014 Board of Directors and Chapter Officers. The second photo is of our newly installed Board of Directors and Chapter Officers, which include from left to right, Dave Nichols (ICC), President Dan Birkel, 1st Vice President Steve LeCam, Board Member Mark Meranda, Board Member Don Jeppson, Sergeant of Arms Jeff Ball, Secretary DJ Korson, Treasurer Jackie Schalberg, 2nd Vice President Eric Simmonson, Board Member Shannon Gardner. The last photo was a little comic issue we had prior to proceeding with the installation (it actually was not a fly, but a cord from the projection screen).
