Dear Colleagues,

Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent Chapter Governor-elect Election!

We wanted to inform you of the results. We had two outstanding candidates, Adam Obley and Alex Schafir. I want to acknowledge and thank them both for their enthusiastic work on behalf of our Chapter over the years. I am happy to announce that Alex Schafir has been selected as the next Governor.

Alex Schafir will start their term as Governor-elect after the Annual Business Meeting on April 20, 2024, and will take office as Governor in April 2025. As Governor, Dr. Schafir will serve as the official representative of the College for the Oregon Chapter, providing a link between members at the local level and leadership at the national level. The Governor has a variety of responsibilities at both levels.
