Members who were nominated for an Executive Board position have all accepted their nomination.  Trustee 4 had two nominations.  Sarah Larson accepted the nomination and Jane Walters declined the nomination.  Since there is only one nomination for each Executive Board position and no challengers, there will be no need for a runoff election.
