Congratulations to those elected to the GEM Board and to the Officer positions!
The GEM Board and management appreciate the interest among the membership to be on the Board. We sincerely encourage those members that were not elected to continue to apply for future positions as they become vacant both on the Board and on committees.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Lew Leigh who served on the GEM Board from 2003 to 2010 and to Al Hatten who served as Board Chair from 2009 to 2011. After a two year rotation, Al steps down as chairmen following the officer term limits established by the Board in its governance policies.
