Morgenthaler elected PAA President…

The PAA Board of Directors has elected new officers, with Chad Morgenthaler of Coulterville, Ill., tapped as president for a one-year term.

Board members are elected by the PAA Tour-level membership and then the board elects the president, vice president, secretary and treasurer.

John Crews of Salem, Va., will serve as Vice President after a year as President. Dave Mansue of Hemphill, Texas, will return as Treasurer. Kurt Dove of Del Rio, Texas, continues as Secretary.

“I want to see our direction and momentum continue with our services to the membership, our tournaments, outreach and revenue,” said Morgenthaler, who has served on the board for three years. “A lot of people have put blood, sweat and tears into the PAA. I have the opportunity to put the time in and want to see where we can take it. I believe the sky is the limit for the PAA because we still have a lot of potential to grow.”

Morgenthaler ran unopposed for the presidency. Crews opted to not pursue the presidency for a second term.

“I have a lot of respect for Chad and his vision,” Crews said. “I believe we’ll continue to grow. I’ve been honored to serve as president and look

forward to continuing working with the board and membership to help make the PAA stronger.”

Other board members are Mike McClelland of Bella Vista, Ark.; Paul Elias of Laurel, Miss.; Matt Reed of Madisonville, Texas; Zell Rowland of Montgomery, Texas; Kelly Jordon of Mineola, Texas; and Brian Snowden of Reeds Spring, Mo.

McClelland was elected to his first term during voting in April. Mansue and Morgenthaler were re-elected.
