New Board of Directors for the National United Methodist Women

Here's news from Harriett Olson about the new leaderehip team for the national UMW.

Dear friends:

 

So much for the “good ol’ summertime!”  Record-breaking heat, rampant forest fires in some places and flooding in others has us praying for people around the country as well as around the world at the moment.  We give thanks for UMCOR and congregations and individuals who are opening “cooling stations,” providing water, supporting firefighters and beginning clean up.

 

Of course, work at United Methodist Women presses on—both here in the office and around the country.  A series of great jurisdiction meetings and regional schools has concluded and the special nominating committee has begun its work.  I am very pleased to share this information with you.

Nominations for leaders of the Board of Directors of United Methodist Women are:

 

Yvette Richards, President

Tupouseine Kelemeni, Vice President

Becky Thompson, Secretary

Judith Pierre-Okerson, Chair of the Committee on Governance

Nichea Ver Veer Guy, Chair of the Committee on Finance

 

The people who were elected as directors at the Jurisdiction meetings are the following:

 

Cindy Staufferer, Minnesota

Angie Lauver Staver, West Ohio

Vickie Newkirk, Indiana

Irma Clark, Northern Illinois

Gail Boykin, New York

Carmen F. S. Vianese, Upper New York

L. Diane Braun, West Virginia

Esther Unica Barkat, West Virginia

Yvette Richards, Missouri

Karon Mann, Arkansas

Becky Thompson, Oklahoma Indian Missionary

Stacie Hawkins, Texas

Tonya Murphy, North Georgia

Lynne Gilbert, Western North Carolina

Emily M. K. Booker (Kathy), Tennessee

Marie Judith Pierre-Okerson, Florida

Michelline Cooper, South Carolina

Grace Pyen, North Georgia

Jo Ann Hayden, Alaska Missionary

Topou S. Kelemeni, California-Pacific

 

The following five additional Board members have also been nominated and have agreed to serve following election at the Organizational Meeting of the Board on August 16, 2012:

 

Elizabeth Leyva, Rio Grande Conference

Nichea Ver Veer Guy, West Michigan Conference

Ann Davis, North Carolina Conference

Daisy Tavarez, New York Conference

Deborah Williams, Desert-Southwest Conference

 

We look forward to the leadership of each of these women along with all who have been elected by their jurisdictions.  God has blessed United Methodist Women with a rich resource of gifts and talents.  We pray for wisdom and skill as the new board is organized, to receive these gifts to guide and support the organization on behalf of women, children and youth around the world.
