President’s Message

Welcome to the Ohio Chapter…

I want to thank the membership for allowing me to represent them as their 2022-2023 Ohio Chapter President. And I would like to thank Past President Brian Peterman for his dedicated service during his presidency.

The chapter has grown in membership and educational opportunities in recent years. My goal is to continue to provide quality educational programs and grow the chapter. The international offers several programs that we could bring into the state. I hope to see everyone at the Ohio Chapter Seminar this fall and the ITC in Cherokee, North Carolina in April.

Chris Elrod IAAI-CFI/ IAAI-CI/ IAAI-EWCT Facilitator, Candidate for IAAI Board of Directors

Chris Elrod IAAI-CFI/ IAAI-CI/ IAAI-EWCT Facilitator has requested that we post his candidacy for the IAAI Board of Directors.  The voting occurs near the IAAI ITC in late April.

2023 Board Member Election Results

The 2023 Elections have been completed. The four 2023 board members are Ray McCarthy, Jeff Williams, Tom Habak, and Chris Ruwe.

Karen Corwin was 5th in the elections and will fill the final year of Matt Hartnett’s board position since he gave up his seat when he moved out of state.

Additionally, per our by-laws, Tim Schreadley was appointed Second Vice President since no one was nominated for that position.

Thank you to everyone who voted in the elections. I hope to have a productive year in the chapter.
