To: MHA Board of Directors
January 15, 2009
At the 2008 Wildacres meeting I was asked by Norbert Senf to chair a
nominating committee which would suggest names of MHA members who might be
willing to serve on the MHA Board of Directors.
Norbert made it clear that the make-up of the committee and the selection
process was completely at my discretion. The MHA Board later passed
a motion to this effect.
Wanting to share the idea and looking for suggestions I first spoke about
this to Tom Trout and then to Pat Manley. As the meetings progressed we
bounced ideas around and had the chance to talk to a number of members who
we thought would be good Board members.
We tried to look for long-time members who are masonry heater builders and,
most important, could command the respect of their fellow members and heater
We are pleased to report that a solid list of very capable candidates has
been approached and they are willing to serve on the Board. They are:
Glen is willing to serve as President, Dave is willing to be Treasurer,
and Brian is willing to serve as Secretary.
