BOARD ELECTION & RESULTS

As the final order of business, elections were held for the six open Board seats – five open 3-year seats created by the completion of five board members’ terms and one open 2-year seat created by the resignation of a Board member. The six Board members elected consist of three returning Board members – Scott Fossum, Tom Heneghan & Jerry Schmitt and three first-time Board members – Joan Farrell, Chris Jillings & Nate Judnic. Nate Judnic will fill the 2-year seat.
Congratulations to all six newly elected Board members.

The WMLL Board of Directors consists of 15-members elected to 3-year terms. The nine returning Board members are Katie Johnson, Harry Miller, Mark Newburg, Robb Vogel & Barry Vredenbregt (with terms that end in October 2022) & Kraig Bodie, Todd Conkey, Sean Michael Dargan & Mark Schauder (with terms that expire in October 2023).
A BIG thank you to Frank Lenoch & Bruce Perchik who are both leaving the Board!

Congratulations, Todd, Jerry & Scott!


INVITATION TO VOLUNTEER!

It takes a lot of planning and work, both at and away from the field, to make WMLL the special place that it is and to provide our players with everything they need to grow and have fun. There are MANY ways to volunteer at WMLL besides being a Board member, coach or team rep. Volunteer needs include single-day, single-season, flexible duration & year-long opportunities…almost all of which do not require any special knowledge of baseball/softball rules or skills.
Please contact Brian Beutter at brian.beutter@gmail.com to learn more about volunteering at WMLL & to find an opportunity that matches up with your schedule, interests & skills.
