It was great to see the roughly 120 smiling faces who attended the 2023 ACI Conference in Stateline, Nev. A big thank you to Aaron Meier and the staff of the Nevada Dept. of Wildlife for the hospitality and programming.
At the Business Meeting, the membership elected a new slate of officers and four new members.
Congratulations to ACI’s new officers:
President – Blake Podhajsky (Oklahoma)
Vice President – Aaron Meier (Nevada)
Secretary – Joanne Martonik (RBFF)
Treasurer – Judy Stokes Weber
And to new members of the Board of Directors:
Brent Drinkut (Indiana)
Bobby Jones (Nevada)
Beth Quillian (Oregon)
Paige Pearson (Virginia)
The directors will serve three-year terms. Paige Pearson will serve the final year of Joanne Martonik’s vacated position.
Congratulations to this year’s winner of the Kay Ellerhoff Spirit of ACI Award – Aaron Meier.
