Vice Chair Report
At the May EAI meeting, the Bylaws chair led the EAI body through the election of three officer
positions: The chair (Jennifer H. from Groveland, MA), vice chair (Katie W. from Boston, MA) and
treasurer (Don from Rochester, NY) were officially voted into office. Those members who had 90
days of abstinence and are committed to an EAI-affiliated meeting were eligible to vote. The voting
passed without opposition.
I also want to spotlight this service opportunity: Do you like to work with graphics? Then the Service Group Support Committee could use your help! Email email@example.com.
