Saving Sight is pleased to welcome three new people to its Board of Directors for the 2018-2019 fiscal year (July 1 – June 30). Welcome VCC Pat Scott, IPCC Larry Boettcher, and PDG Roger Tiemann! Board members are key to the organization’s success. They actively participate in long-range planning and monitor the organization’s financial health and overall performance. As highly visible members of their communities, the board members also enhance Saving Sight’s public standing by sharing the mission, accomplishments, and goals with Lions clubs, the general public, and other partner organizations. As Lion board members, these individuals also keep their districts informed about Saving Sight. “Our board members provide crucial oversight that enables us to change more lives by saving sight through their engagement and support,” said Tony Bavuso, chief executive officer.

Saving Sight also expresses its gratitude to three individuals who retired from the board of directors on June 30, 2018. “Thank you to PDG Sandy McCann (served 3 years), PDG Lion John Reese (served 6 years), and Dr. Dan Schoenleber (served 6 years) for your service and the valuable leadership you provided over the past few years,” added Bavuso.

At the June Board of Directors meeting, the board elected its 2018-2019 leadership team.
These board members were elected to leadership roles for the new fiscal year:

President: Lion Pat Martchink, MD-26 M2
Vice President: IPCC Larry Boettcher, MD-26 M4
Treasurer: Lion Mike Oldelehr, MD-26 M7
Secretary: Lion Cassidy Obermark, OD, MD-26 M1
