More than 8,200 contributing members of the International Lutheran Laymen's League/Lutheran Hour Ministries voted in the recent election to fill open spots on the organization's Board of Directors. The elected candidates will be installed at the July Board of Directors meeting in Milwaukee.

Phillip Johnson of Maplewood, Minn., was elected to a two-year term as chairman, after serving for the past three years as vice chairman. With Johnson's election to chairman, Gene Partlow of Williamsburg, Va., has been appointed by the Board to serve as vice chairman. Partlow will fill the remaining one year on Johnson's term as vice chairman.

The following individuals were elected to three-year terms on the Board as Directors: Londa Borer-Skov of Sacramento, Calif. (second term); Michael "Mick" Onnen of Davenport, Neb. (first term); Paul Pettit of Lincoln, Neb. (second term); and William "Bill" Snow of Watertown, S.D. (second term).

In addition to voting for open positions on the Board, members also passed the following three Bylaws changes that appeared on the ballot:
• Removing references to the transitional terms of office for Board members from the Bylaws since they no longer apply.
• Creating a voting registration process each year so that Missouri's 10% quorum for elections only applies to those members who have registered to vote.
• Updating the title of LHM's chief staff member in the Bylaws and then giving the Board the ability within policy to change this title in the future.

More information will be shared in the coming months regarding the process for how contributing members of the ministry will register to vote in future elections.

Thanks to everyone who voted in 2016 and for your support of Lutheran Hour Ministries.
