Announcement: Leadership Change

DAA President Kristin Ingram-Worthman resigned at the start of last Thursday’s Steering Committee meeting.  Citing personal reasons, she turned the meeting over to Vice President, now President, Mark Archuleta.  Mark will serve out the rest of Kristin’s term until a new group of DAA officers is inaugurated in April.

We hope you will join us in extending our thanks and appreciation to Kristin for all the hard work she’s put in over the past two years.

From Kristin:

At last Thursday’s DAA steering committee meeting, I resigned as President for personal reasons. It’s important to me that you know it was not an easy decision to make. I spent a lot of time talking with some people very close to me about it. I have received some calls and Facebook messages about my decision. I truly appreciate your concern.

I am honored to have had the opportunity to serve as DAA’s Recording Secretary, Vice President, and President . I am looking forward to seeing the Democratic Alliance for Action grow under new leadership.
