The Board of Directors for The Center is pleased to announce the election of a new slate of executive officers. The Centers bylaws state that we must elect officers every two years and each officer can serve a maximum of three terms. 

Joseph S. Oddo, Jr., former Vice President of the Board of Directors and Regional Manager for Cox Business has been elected unanimously to serve as President of the Board of Directors. In a memo that went out to staff on Tuesday evening, Oddo stated “Our first order of business remains the same, find a permanent Executive Director that we need, that you need and that our community needs with the skills to be able to lead our center with dignity, passion and strength for years to come!” He continues on to say, “We have some work to do and I know that with our shared love of this community, there is nothing we can’t achieve.”

In addition to a new President, a new Vice President, Treasurer and Secretary have been elected unanimously by the board.

Brian Hosier has been elected Vice President; Scott Ramer has been elected to Treasurer and Garrett Pattiani has been elected Secretary. Hosier, Ramer and Pattiani are elated to serve in this leadership capacity for The Center and are eager to get to work to increase our reach to the community!

The Board of Directors would like to thank our outgoing officers for their years of service to The Center and our community! Wendy Kraft departs as Secretary, Donya Monroe, current Interim Executive Director departs as Treasurer and Wayne Cassard departs as President. The Center is in a better place today because of the 2017-2018 Executive Committee and we thank them for their service. Cassard will continue as a member the Executive Committee as Past President and serve as council to the committee.
