2020 Board of Directors Elections: Nominating Committee Slate & Ballot

Greetings!

NYSTIA's Nominating Committee is pleased to present the 2020 slate of candidates for your review.

This year's process was both gratifying and challenging due to the number and qualifications of interested individuals. Ultimately, I believe that the committee has selected the optimal slate of highly engaged members. They collectively meet the Bylaws* requirements and offer NYSTIA the array of professional expertise, organizational affiliation and geographic diversity that will best serve our membership moving forward.

The nominee list below includes two (2) board members returning for a 2nd term. Term limits dictated by our Bylaws enable us to propose five (5) new board members this year.

  • Beth Duane, Corning Museum of Glass (2nd term)
  • Hilarie Logan-Dechene, The Wild Center (1st term)
  • Sarah Foster, Oneida County Tourism (1st term)
  • Dana Krueger, DanaEvents (2nd term)
  • Greg LaDuca, Visit Rochester (1st term)
  • Anna Leonard, Diamond Mills Hotel & Tavern (1st term)
  • Eric Szucs, Wyoming County Tourism (1st Term)
