Texas State Genealogical Society Elects 2018-2019 Board

Delegates of the Texas State Genealogical Society elected their slate of officers for 2018 – 2019 during their annual meeting (a GoTo meeting session) held on October 21, 2017.

Randy Whited (President), Sue Kaufman (Director of Education) and Susan Ball (Director of Membership) were elected to a 1 year term of office.

Sandra Crowley (Director of Development), Patti Gillespie (Secretary) and Betsy Mills (Treasurer) were elected to a 2 year term of office.

Bylaw changes that include a requirement for overlapping, 2 year terms for board members were also approved, which is why the President, Director of Education and Director of Membership officers are only serving a 1 year term. Elections for these positions will be held again next year.
