Joining the Board this year are Mandy Mallott, long-time Juneauite and parent, who will be serving on the Education Committee along with her other duties on the board; and Rico Worl, an anthropologist working as the arts director for Sealaska Heritage Foundation, and owner and designer for Trickster Company, who will also be joining the Education Committee. Worl will also be working on the JACC Expansion Committee.

Reelected for a second term is Jess Parks, who serves on the Program, Granting Opportunities, Fiscal Sustainability, and Creative Economy committees.

Officers elected to serve this year are Candace Behrends, president; Andy Kline, vice president; Bridget Lujan, treasurer; and SueAnn Randall, secretary.

The full board roster, in addition to those named, includes Annie Calkins, Sean Boily, Jeff Bush, Donna Powell, Janet Schempf, and Marsha Sousa. As yet unfilled is a student position.
