- Similarly, Rusty Zimmerman (he of the Free Portrait Project), will continue to serve as the CHCA Community Liaison, after taking over for Connie Nugent Miller, who also stepped down due to a family emergency last year.
- The duties of the Treasurer will now be split between Keisha and Josh as Joanna Crispe, our Treasurer for the last two years, chose not to run again.
