Hello Chapter Members!

As we come up to the end of this chapter year, which concludes this coming June 30th, it’s been my pleasure to be your President! We had a successful year and I want to thank you for the turnouts at our various meetings and events.

We did our annual Call for Volunteers this Spring and it took us a little while longer than our planned schedule to fill our Chapter Slate of Officers. However, I am so excited to now be able to share the wonderful news that we have several members who have graciously volunteered to lead the NCMA Space Coast Chapter’s Board for the 2023-2024 program year.

The Space Coast Chapter’s Board of Directors has elected to make the following announcement to its membership based upon this guidance from our Chapter By-Laws:

  • In accordance with Article III – Paragraph D, if, after the close of nominations, there are unopposed candidates for specific offices, the Chapter Board of Directors may declare via a formal notification to the general Chapter Membership in an email that the unopposed candidates are thereby elected to their respective offices and the names of the unopposed candidates will not appear on a formal ballot for election of officers submitted to the general Chapter Membership in May as normally provided for in Article E.

Therefore, I’m pleased to announce that the individuals below are hereby elected onto the NCMA Space Coast (SCC) 2023-2024 Board of Directors.

David DeFrieze

Senior Vice President / President-Elect
Beverly Neurock

Summer Wyllie-Vitt

Jay Shafir

VP Membership, Website & Communications
Sai Srinivas Telekepalli

VP Programs and Education
Ursula Nkwantabisa

I am confident the new NCMA SCC Board will lead our Chapter through another fantastic year of programming and events. Please join me in congratulating our new Board members!

We will be installing these new Board Chapter Officers at our last meeting for this chapter year, which will be held in person on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM at The Mansion in Melbourne, FL.

Please stay tuned for more details in a follow-on email blast where you will then be able to reserve your attendance in what we hope will be a good end of the Chapter Year celebration for the membership to fete our Chapter Fellows, the new Chapter Board of Directors, and to thank all those individuals who helped serve the Chapter on the Board this past year.

I hope everyone is well and look forward to seeing you soon in June!

Deborah Miller-Caldwell
NCMA Space Coast Chapter, President
