The CALL election of officers for the 2014-2015 year and beyond was held from Tuesday, February 18th
through Friday, March 14th. Of the 266 members eligible to vote, 144 members elected the following candidates:
- Julie Pabarja,Vice-President/President Elect
- Stephanie Crawford, Treasurer
- Robert Martin, Director
Deborah Ginsberg, Valerie Kropf, and Jesse Bowman were wonderful candidates and were exceptionally gracious when informed of the results! Thank you so much to all of you for agreeing to run for a CALL office. I hope to see your names of the ballot again very soon!
I would also like to thank the Nominations and Elections Committee – Denise Glynn, Ramsey Donnell, Joan Ogden, Kathellen Bruner, Lenore Glanz, Lyonette Louis-Jacques, and Susan Retzer.
A very special thank you to Joan Ogden – she is a wealth of information and frankly the knowledge keeper of all things related to the CALL election. We would not have had such a successful election without her wonderful expertise.
This year we had a 54.1% voting rate.
In years past the rates have been:
- 54.7% in 2012/2013
- 45.4% in 2011/2012
- 46.5% in 2010/2011
- 51.9% in 2009/2010
- 47.8% in 2008/2009
Hopefully next year we can have an unprecedented turn-out to choose our new Board members from a wonderful slate of dedicated CALL members!
