The Shakespeare Oxford Society board of trustees elected officers on December 12. President John Hamill was elected by the board at their November meeting during the annual meeting and conference in Houston. New officers are First Vice-president Richard Joyrich and Second Vice-president Matthew Cossolotto. Incumbent officers Secretary Virginia Hyde and Treasurer Susan Grimes Width were also re-elected.
President John Hamill reported today that a new committee has been formed, and will be headed by Second Vice-president Cossolotto:
Matthew Cossolotto has been selected as the Second Vice-president of the Shakespeare Oxford Society, and chairperson of the newly created Publications/Public Relations Committee. Publications and public relations are very much related to each other, and we want to increase our public relations outreach, and expand the use of the SOS newsletter and The Oxfordian in this effort. This will be a very challenging task for all of us. Matthew is full of ideas as to how to improve both our publications and outreach.
First Vice-president Richard Joyrich will continue to be in charge of membership development.
