RE: WeCAB News
Interim President Selected
At the last WeCAB Umbrella Board meeting, I agreed to serve as the Interim Board President. The vacancy in the position occurred after President Susan Hoversten decided to step down from the WeCAB Umbrella Board. The Board wishes to thank Susan for her thoughtful and dedicated service to the WeCAB organization over the last year. Not only did Susan serve as the President, but she also volunteers as a driver and dispatcher. Thank you, Susan, and our very best wishes to you and your family.
