SWIF began a new fiscal year July 1, marking a transition on our Board of Directors. We welcome Bill McCormack of Marshall as our new board chair, knowing that Bill will continue pushing all of us at SWIF to continue raising the bar. He and Rob Saunders, vice chair, are providing great leadership!
We cannot thank outgoing board chair Sandy Ludeman of Tracy enough for his leadership, dedication and enthusiasm for this organization. We look forward to Sandy’s continued service on the board knowing these characteristics will continue to shine through.
We also cannot say thanks enough to our two outgoing board members Rick Ellingworth of Redwood Falls and Wayne Freese of Worthington. I can truly say they have made a significant impact on our organization and I know they will continue to make an impact in our entire region.
Our volunteer board represents the absolute best of southwest Minnesota. Thanks to our entire board for all they do, especially during our milestone 25th anniversary year. I am so excited to continue our work under their leadership.
