Happy New Year to all Campbell veterans and Campbell Veterans Memorial Fund supporters.
The Board of Directors conducted its annual retreat on Saturday, 1/14/2017 on the Cisco Systems campus. The participants elected Board Members and planned for events and activities for this promising year.
We are pleased to announce that Claire Kotowski was elected to the Board as a new member. She has been functioning as Secretary for the past year but will now assume role CVMF Board Secretary.
There were some other notable assignments that included Ken Estep assuming the role of Chairman of Veterans Support Group Committee while our Board keystone Mike Kotowski agreed to Chair the Events Committee. Len Duncan (President/CEO), Rob Peterson (Vice President) and Jim Stevens (Treasurer) were re-elected to officer positions.
While CVMF added a new Board member, we bid farewell to long-time Board Member, co-founder and former Chairman, Jim Free. While Jim will remain engaged in the general direction of CVMF as Chairman Emeritus, he will cede most of his day-to-day duties to others on the Board. All of us want to thank Jim for his enduring dedication and hard work during these many years by trying to make the world a better placed for our veterans.
Led by President/CEO Len Duncan, the Board also committed to several initiatives that include broadening CMVF’s outreach to other vet-related organizations, helping to mitigate the plight of local homeless vets and publishing a quarterly News Letter. Of course, the Board voted enthusiastically to reprise the Gala Dinner in November.
With most of the important issues presented and reviewed, the meeting was adjourned, Sine Die.
