    Dear members of our AGA family:

    I’m pleased to announce that Ann Martinez will be AGA’s next Midwest Regional Vice President.  Her term as RVP-elect starts July 1, 2015.  (Technically, her status is ’nominee’ as the one selected by the Nominating Committee.  However, it is very rare that other nominations are made from the floor at the annual business meeting in July.)  I know she will bring knowledge and energy to the regional team and all of AGA.  She currently serves as the Lincoln Chapter President. 

    Please join me in congratulating Ann.
