At its Annual Meeting of Members, held January 27 during the 2013 NAMM Show, the NAMM Board of Directors bid farewell to departing members and welcomed eight new faces to a three-year term.

In welcoming the new members, chairman Kevin Cranley expressed his faith in their collective expertise and dedication, and noted the accomplishments of their predecessors.

“Almost two years ago, the board sat down and totally rewrote NAMM’s vision, mission and objectives,” Cranley states. “In doing so, they brought their personal tenets and their professional experience to the table and applied it to NAMM, further defining and enriching our association for generations of Members to come.

“I have complete confidence in the ability of our newest members to further elevate our Board, and by extension our organization, and to provide our Members with every opportunity for success in the coming years.”

The following NAMM Members were elected for service from 2013 to 2015:
