WNCPA Board Welcomes New Directors
The WNCPA Board of Directors held its first meeting of 2017 this past Tuesday, Janauary 10 and welcomed four new directors. We are very pleased to have two longtime friends of the Association rejoin the Board, Cindy Carter and Elizabeth Henry. Cindy, also a beloved past-president, is taking on the role (again!) of Program Director and is well on the way to having a full year of exciting programs lined-up! And Elizabeth, has once again assumed the Treasurer's position and will be sure to keep us on sound financial footing! We are also very pleased to welcome two new faces to the Board, Bruce MacDonald and Jeff Moore. These two gentlemen may be new to the Board, but they are by no means new to the Association and Aviation! Welcome all and here's to a new year of good friends, great meetings, and safe flying!
