Vice President: Bob Dio, Worcester. A veteran runner and still having fun.

Treasurer: Karen Lemerise

Membership Secretary: JoAnne Bedard - JoAnne is a hardworking and dedicated runner who's always willing to support runners in their endeavors. She is a slower runner and always enjoys the conversations she has on the roads!
