Welcome to the 2020 NCECA new board members!

NCECA Board members volunteer their time and energy that directly impacts our community and our field. Some board members are appointed by the current board and others are voted onto the board by the NCECA membership. One of the strengths of the NCECA Board is that, with our staggered terms, the Board is always changing! We welcome these new members:

  • Pete Pinnell, President of the Board
  • Alex Hibbitt, Secretary of the Board
  • Merrie Wright, Steward of the Board
  • Lisa Mertda-Paytes, Onsite Liaison – Ohio
  • Marsha Karagheusian, Onsite Liaison – Ohio
  • Simon Levin, Director at Large
  • Michelle Castro, Student Director at Large

We thank you, pervious board members, for all their service and hard work:

  • Holly Hanessian, President of the Board
  • Jill Oberman, Secretary of the Board
  • Rhonda Willers, Steward of the Board
  • Kelly Kerr, Onsite Liaison – Richmond
  • Jeff Vick, Onsite Liaison – Ohio
  • Julia Galloway, Director at Large
  • Ashlyn Pope, Student Director at Large

During the year we seek nominations for members who are willing to serve on the Board of Directors. You can nominate someone else, or you can self-nominate. We will keep you informed as these opportunities arise. The NCECA board is consistently made stronger with fresh perspectives and diverse interests within the field of ceramics. Consider serving on the NCECA Board of Directors and enriching your clay community!
