The New KSER Board of Directors

Three new members were elected to the KSER Foundation Board of Directors at the foundation's annual meeting Tuesday evening, August 11th at the Everett Public Library.

Ballots were sent to all current KSER members several weeks ago and our members elected three new members and voted new terms for two existing members, Marla Hamilton Lucas and Mary Jane Brell Vujovic.

One of the first items of business for the new KSER board was electing a new slate of officers.

Nina Martinez of Everett, chair of the Latino Civic Alliance, was elected as the new President of the Board of Directors.  Martinez replaces outgoing board president Brenda Mann Harrison of Snohomish, who remains on the board as Immediate Past President.

Everett resident Mary Jane Brell Vujovic, the Snohomish County Human Services Director was elected as Board Vice President. Sandy Thompson of Everett was elected as Board Secretary; and newly elected board member Erin Monroe of Seattle was elected as Board Treasurer.

Current board member Marla Hamilton Lucas was elected to a new three year term; and current board member Mary Jane Brell Vujovic was elected to a new two year term.

Just like the 70 volunteers who provide much of the programming that you hear on KSER and KXIR, the members of the KSER Foundation Board of Directors also serve as volunteers.

And special thanks to Pam Somers, who completed her term as a KSER board member.
