I'm pleased to officially report to you that the Missouri National Guard Association has selected its next Executive Director. By vote of the MoNGA Board of Directors at its meeting last Thursday afternoon, Mr. Larry Crowder has been selected as the next Association Executive Director to succeed Dr. Joel Denney. Mr. Crowder's appointment follows a National search that began a number of months ago.
There is still some work to do with finalizing the contract with Mr. Crowder, but I anticipate the effective date of the transition to be this summer. I hope we can use the upcoming MoNGA Annual Conference to welcome Mr. Crowder as our next Executive Director and wish Dr. Denney the best of luck for his future and thank him for his many years of dedicated service to us.
I would like to thank those involved in the selection of the next Executive Director including Army VP Christopher Moenster and his committee members. Chris' work was a model in professionalism and integrity. I am sure there will be more to follow at the conference in April. I hope to see you there. And, remember, conference registration is "open" at the MoNGA web site. To register, 'click'here.
