The Nominating and Tellers Committee, chaired by Immediate Past President Michael Purol P.E., and composed of Past President Matt Bedinghaus, P.E. (Ozark Chapter), Past President David Howe, P.E. (Western Chapter), Past President Kurt Higgins, P.E. (Southwest Chapter) and Past President Breck Washam, P.E. (St. Louis Chapter) met by conference call on March 18, 2020 to select the Vice President that will join the current slate of officers that will lead MSPE in 2020-2021.
The nominees are:
John Riediger, P.E., President
Mitch Krysa, P.E., President-Elect
Rachel Goeke, P.E., Vice President
Kelsie Clark, P.E., Treasurer (Second year of a two-year term)
Bob Becnel, P.E., F.NSPE, who will continue as the Immediate Past President
In accordance with MSPE’s Bylaws, the President-Elect automatically assumes the position of President. MSPE’s current Vice President’s interest in continuing as an officer was also confirmed, and MSPE’s current Treasurer will remain in the role for the second year. This leaves only the Vice President position open for new candidates- for which two members applied.
