John Petty was re-elected board chairman by acclamation. Debbie Ferrier was elected vice chairman in a close vote over Peter Leong. The board voiced appreciation for Leong, noting some voted out of respect for a busy schedule that Leong has for the next year. It includes being the president of the Chinese fellowship and a month long trip to Asia.

Steve Vernon also was elected associate executive director. The vote was unanimous.
