Thank you to all those who agreed to run in this year's election. Committing to three years of service in a national organization is not an easy decision and we truly appreciate all candidates for their consideration.

The 2017–18 Board of Directors will elect officers and announce them at the AOA Annual Meeting in Sacramento, California, on July 15, 2017, during the AOA National Fleece Conference sponsored by Epic Alpacas.

Special thanks to this year's Election Committee members — Joe Kyger (Chair), Gina Glasscock, Sue King, and Renee Ritenour.

And finally, thank you to outgoing AOA Board Members, Bonnie Potter and Norm Johnson. Your service to the industry and AOA during this time is truly appreciated.
