Cahall, CFSP, CCO; Treasurer Charles “Chuck” T. Bowman, CMSP, CFSP, CCO; and Secretary R. Bryant Hightower Jr., CFSP.
The 2016-17 NFDA Board of Directors will be led by President W. Ashley Cozine, CFSP, CPC, CCO. The officers will serve one-year terms of office that begin at the conclusion of the 2016 NFDA International Convention & Expo in Philadelphia.
Serving with Cozine, Cahall, Bowman and Hightower on the 2016-17 NFDA Board of Directors are the following at-large representatives: Randy Anderson, CFSP, CCO (2015-17); Terry Reardon, CCO (2016-17); John “Jack” O. Mitchell IV, CFSP, CCO (2016-18); and Peter “Butch” G. Mulhearn Jr. (2016-18).
2015-16 NFDA President Bob Arrington, CCO, will continue his service on the Board with a one-year term as immediate past president that commences at the end of the 2016 NFDA Convention.
In the 2016 NFDA Officer Elections, Cahall and Bowman ran unopposed. In the contested election for secretary, the results were:
- R. Bryant Hightower Jr., CFSP: 44%
- Stephen R. Kemp, CFSP: 33%
- Alec S. Anderson, CFSP, CCO: 23%
During the month of August, 1,032 eligible members voted for the individuals they believed should serve as officers on the NFDA Board of Directors. This election is the result of changes to the NFDA governance structure adopted last year. Under the new structure, all eligible NFDA members are responsible for voting for the officers on the Board of Directors – president-elect, treasurer and secretary. The Policy Board continues to elect at-large representatives.
