2015 ZRA Election Results

July 31, 2015

Dear ZRA Members:

I am pleased to provide the following election results:
Total Members Casting Votes: 55

Candidate Votes Percent of Total
Adrienne Horrigan 55 100.0%
Dana Duke 20 36.4%
Karen Jarvis 35 63.6% *see explanation below
Stephanie Eller 32 28.6%
Aletha Kinser 30 26.8%
Michelle Federspiel 25 22.3%
Jennifer Wilson 25 22.3%

*On 14 July 2015 Karen Jarvis sent in her official withdrawal from the election; this was necessary due to some unforeseen changes in personal commitments.

The Vice President and President positions were NOT on the ballot. The Board of Directors, in following with the Bylaws vacancy policy Article V (Officers), Section 5 (B), will be actively recruiting to fill Vice President’s and President’s term, since the Nominations and Elections Committee was unable to secure candidates for the 2015 election.

Respectfully submitted,
Teresa Masseau
Chairman, Nominations & Elections Committee
