USA Triathlon Announces 2013 Election Results
New Board of Directors and Athlete Advisory Council Members Named
USA Triathlon today announced the organization’s 2013 Election Re-Vote is complete and five candidates for the USA Triathlon Board of Directors were elected.
Three incumbents were re-elected: Susan Haag (Jacksonville, Fla.), who represents the Florida Region; Mike Wien (Marietta, Ga.), from the Southeast Region; and Steve Sexton (Pilot Hill, Calif.) as an Elite/Pro Athlete Representative. Haag and Wien will both serve four-year terms, while Sexton will serve a two-year term.
Two newly elected members of the USA Triathlon Board of Directors were also announced and will serve four-year terms: Kevin Haas (Berkeley, Calif.) will join as the Southwest Region Representative, and David Kuendig (Lexington, Ky.) as the Mideast Region Representative, having previously served on the Board as an Athlete Representative.
Also, two seats on the Athlete Advisory Council (AAC) were newly filled by Gwen Jorgensen (St. Paul, Minn.) and Joel Rosinbum (Austin, Texas). Sexton retains his seat on the AAC by virtue of his election to the Board as Elite/Pro Athlete Representative. They will all serve two-year terms.
Additionally, nine USA Triathlon Regions elected members to their respective Regional Councils, while two national bylaw proposals and one resolution were approved.
USA Triathlon annual members in good standing were eligible to vote for Board and Regional Council representatives from their respective Regions. Elite Athlete Representatives and the Athlete Advisory Council members were elected by their fellow elite athletes.
