New Faces on the Board of Directors

Greetings, Members!

It’s time for new faces on the board of directors. Now in its twelfth year, many of our long-time Board members are retiring. With the coming new year will come some changes to the the Society’s board make up.

  • Tom Edwards, who has served on the board for many years as a member, secretary and scholarship chair recently decided to resign.
  • Lisa Middleton, recently elected to the Palm Springs City Council, has also served for quite a few years and will be resigning soon after taking her new official post.
  • Kai Kushen, our current secretary plans to resign at the end of this current term.
  • I also plan to resign at the end of this current term, at the upcoming annual membership meeting in January.

I want to thank Tom, Lisa and Kai for their incredible support and service and wish them great success in their new pursuits.

Lisa, Tom, Kai, Tracy Merrigan and Judi Greene have generously agreed to form a search committee and you will hear from them soon with more information. If you are interested in learning more about serving on the Board, please drop us a line at [email protected].

We are also looking for members interested in working on the Garden Tour Committee for next spring’s annual desert garden tour, whether on the Board or not. Please also drop us a note at the previously mentioned e-mail address if this is of interest to you.
