President – Tom Fitzgerald
Secretary – Terry Retter
Treasurer – Simon Baker
Vice Presidents – Craig Hanson and Joe Strout
BOD Incumbents Tom Fitzgerald and Terry Retter maintain the same positions they have held for the past year. Newly elected BOD member Simon Baker replaces Incumbent Joe Strout as Treasurer. This is a good move considering Mr. Baker’s experience as Treasurer for major corporations and may help alleviate the concerns of Mr. Strout being Treasurer for both the SOA and the Somersett Golf and Country Club (SGCC). Given pending issues between the SOA and the SGCC, many felt that holding both these positions could present a conflict of interest problem for Mr. Strout. Newly elected BOD member Craig Hanson also has a strong financial background, who along with Mr. Baker and Mr. Strout provides the SOA Board with significant financial expertise. Perhaps leading the SOA into a more favorable financial position.
