New Board Members Elected

Two new board members were elected at the Hanover Little Theatre Annual Meeting on June. Suzanne Williamson and Chad Zepp will officially join the board on July 1.

Williamson has appeared onstage in Bingo! The Winning MusicalThe Oldest Profession and the upcoming Funny Business as well as backstage and on lights for several productions. She will fill a newly-created At Large Board Member seat through June 30, 2019. Zepp, who was most recently seen in Incorruptible and has also worked in many off-stage roles, will fill the final year of a seat vacated by Courtney McDougall.

McDougall’s seat came open when she was elected as Second Vice President to replace Jeremy Slagle, who has stepped down from the board. The new seat for Williamson came open when the board voted to make the Immediate Past President a non-voting position on the board., Heidi Hormel will continue in that position as an ex officio member of the board.

The full board elected for 2017-18 is:

President Brian Shea
First Vice President Duane Bull
Second Vice President Courtney McDougall
Treasurer Brandon O’Donnell
Secretary Nicole Merkel
Facilities Director Skip Tananis
At Large Board Members Charlie Beard
Leslie Breighner
Sally Chase
Erin DiNello
Bonnie Raubenstine
Suzanne Williamson
Chad Zepp
Immediate Past President (ex officio) Heidi Hormel

The board also approved two other bylaw changes – one eliminating membership cards and the other adjusting the quorum necessary for a meeting of the general membership.
