The Lake Havasu Marine Association announced changes in key officer designations for 2012.
Jim Salscheider, currently executive director, is now president and CEO. Jody Gamble, presiding vice president, becomes chairman, and Jason Reeves, former past president, assumes the title of vice chairman.
Continuing in their present designations will be Judy Whelan, secretary, and Dan Mathews, treasurer. At-large directors for the coming year will be Gary Kellogg, Carl Flusche, Shirley Smith, Thom Felke and new member Jim Dolan.
The association recently concluded its 2011 season of boating improvement projects, which was highlighted by the recent completion of a new navigable deep-water channel connecting the north end of Lake Havasu with the mouth of the river gateway to Topock Gorge and Needles.
Also a major success for the association in 2011 was Designated Operator, an aggressive voluntary safety campaign aimed at encouraging boaters to have a sober captain at the helm.
The group’s boat show begins April 20.
