New Board, New Vision


From the minutes of the 8 January, 2019 MWW Board meeting

  • Welcome to the new board members: Julie Tuttle Davis; Dianne Despain; Maria Williams-Hawkins; Lylanne Musselman, Marissa Rose; Angelia Stone; Larry Sweazy
  • Returning board members: Jeff Pearson, Kelsey Timmerman
  • Returning Executive Director: Jama Kehoe Bigger

Because Jeff has been acting as the interim board president, the board voted unanimously to retain him as the permanent board president. Kelsey Timmerman will continue in his position of treasurer. Dianne Despain was elected as board Secretary. Marissa Rose was elected as board vice president.

Re-positioning of MWW’s standing committee was addressed with the following results: The Finance/Fundraising/Grants committee will be chaired by Kelsey Timmerman. The Programs/Community Outreach Community will be chaired by Jama Bigger. The Board Governance and Recruitment Committee will be chaired by Jeff Pearson. The Public Relations/Marketing Committee will be co-chaired by Julie Tuttle Davis and Angelia Stone.

Two new committees were created: The Executive Committee to be chaired by Jeff Pearson and the Volunteer Committee to be chaired by Jama Bigger.

The Agent Fest, coming up May 10-11 was discussed, with prices set at $249.00 (early bird registration) and $299 after April 1. Six agents will be attending the pitch sessions. Look for more details in the weeks ahead. The summer conference, set for July 25-27, was also discussed and more information on that will be rolled out shortly.

Our new motto: New Board. New Vision. Exciting things are happening at MWW! Keep checking back to see what they are.
