Richard Lovelace, former Chair of the Growth & Strategy committee, has resigned from his position on the Board of Trustees.

His service was integral to the MOSH Genesis project.
Mary Anne Jacobs, CEO of Girl Scouts of Gateway Council, joins the Board, beginning a term of three years. She will serve as a full Trustee, with duties that include service on at least one Board committee.
