Our two new NOMADS Board Members begin their 4 year terms on Thursday this week. Congratulations to Gary Hatcher, our new At-Large Board Member and to Bill Koch, our new South Central Jurisdictional Representative on the Board. We appreciate the dedication and many involvements of our outgoing board members this year, Dan Brown (board chairman) and Eugene Wengert (treasurer).
