HCA 2022 Election Results

Nearly 200 HCA voting members cast ballots in the 2022 election, some in advance via
absentee ballot and some in person during the HCA Annual Meeting Friday, June 17.
Congratulations to David Blair, Eric Tankesley-Clarke and incumbent Mary Olson, who
were elected to the HCA Board of Directors. They will begin their terms of office
following the Reorganization Meeting.

None of the three proposed amendments to the Constitution and Bylaws were
approved. The first would have required HCA elections to be conducted through mailed
ballots, the second would have clarified the role of the Executive Committee and its
relationship to the Board of Directors, and the third would have eliminated the
Executive Committee and required the full board to meet monthly.

During the Annual Meeting, HCA President Suzanne Parker presented certificates
of appreciation to two board members who completed their four-year terms of
office, Candy Freeman and Mary Olson. She also read a resolution of
commendation for Charlie Wade, who stepped down from the board in February
due to health reasons. Charlie had served on the board 22 years between 1978
and 2022 and had held the roles of treasurer, vice-president, president, and
immediate past president.

Thanks go to candidates Jim Cooke, Michael Maher and James Warren for their
willingness to run for the board.

And, finally, thanks to the HCA members and study clubs who cast ballots in this
election.
