All members in good standing were sent an election e-mail in July directing them to the AITP web portal to learn more about the candidates, including their vision for AITP and their leadership and service history. For the first time, AITP held electronic elections, thanks to AITP Webmaster Mark Kleine of the Oklahoma City chapter. It was a huge success!
The results were as follows and, of course, members who voted could only vote for the district candidate in their respective district:
Executive Vice President / President Elect Mark Gilfand: 231 votes
Secretary/Treasurer Teresa Hickerson: 229 votes
Eastern District Director Alan Kotmel: 45 votes
Central District Director Rich Barnier: 68 votes
Southern District Director Mark Kleine: 55 votes
Western District Director Jim Henry: 61 votes
To all the AITP members that voted, thank you!
