Shelley Frody Becomes the WCR Western Michigan Chapter President for 2014-2015
Lisa Coe is the New President-Elect 2014-2015
Former president Melanie Abraham announced that she would be stepping down as she has relocated to Austin, Texas in May 2014. Melanie's resignation was forwarded to the governing board and was effective on May 7, 2013. President-Elect Shelley Frody stepped into the role of president of the chapter a bit early. We are deeply grateful for her desire to lead and for the supportive efforts of the current team of governing board members. Lisa Coe was nominated and accepted for President-Elect for the remainder of the year and the full term of 2015. Please join us in wishing Melanie Abraham all the best as she begins a new chapter in her life and career. We thank her for her service on behalf of the organization.
