This year's president, Jim Meek, was elected vice president, and Valrey Kettner, associate director of the contracts and grants office, was elected secretary/treasurer. The two at- large seats on the council's executive committee went to benefits specialist Jan Flick and Bob Basham, development officer for the College of Family and Consumer Sciences.
