Dear ACDA-PA members,
As you may recall, Brent Talbot was named President-Elect Designate in the election held in February. Brent recently let us know that he will be taking a position out of state for next academic year. I am excited to share with you that the board has appointed Kyle Zeuch as President Elect Designate, effective immediately. Kyle has been serving in the role of Lifelong Repertoire and Resources Coordinator and is a familiar face to ACDA-PA. Thank you, Kyle, for being willing to serve in this new capacity! We look forward to your leadership!
