Alongside incoming President Chelsea Krause, OFWIM members chose two new officers at the October 6 business meeting. Please welcome:
- Dyan Pursell – President-Elect
- Amy Martin Ewing – Member-at-Large
Our 2019-2020 leader Karen Horodysky is now serving as Past President, and Michael Barbour accepted another term as Treasurer.
Each year in conjunction with our Annual Conference, OFWIM hosts a fundraising raffle and a silent auction to support our Student Scholarship Program. Like the 2020 conference, this year’s raffle and auction will be conducted online!
Raffle tickets are on sale now at $1.00 apiece or 6 for $5.00. In addition, each registered conference attendee will receive one free ticket. Attendees can buy chances in the general raffle (random drawings throughout the two-day conference) or apply tickets to one or more special items in a targeted raffle.
Raffle and silent auction proceeds go 100% toward research scholarships for 1 or 2 students each year, providing funds for their research and travel assistance to attend and participate in the OFWIM conference.
