At their 20th annual meeting last night the Women’s Resource Center passed a change to their constitution. They will allow any person 18 years or older to become a full member which will allow them to vote at the annual meeting as well as seek election to the Board of Directors. The change will now allow men to become full members with two seats on the Board available to men. As a result of that change Chad Cooper and Mark Svaren were elected to one year terms along with Sheena Reed. As well Margaret Head-Steppan, Sheri Pearson and Doreen Roman were elected to two year terms and Katie Kawerski to a three year term. Linda Eryou and Shelly Craig continue their present terms on the Board.
The change will also allow any youth below 18 years, male or female to become Associate Members who don’t vote at the meeting or hold a seat on the Board.
In her report Executive Director Colleen Arnold reported they continue to provide public education and awareness with their many annual events adding they are very pleased to see all the community support in their efforts to end violence against women and girls.
