Nominations for the Board of Directors were solicited from CASE District VI members through broadcast email notifications. The results were shared at the annual meeting in Denver, Colo. on January 8.
In addition to being voted in during the annual meeting, Ridgeway was also invited to speak at the "Expanding Horizons" CASE District VI conference January 8-10, where he presented "Using Your Leadership Strengths to Secure Major Gifts," during the development track break-out sessions.
"It is an honor to be selected to serve CASE in this new appointment," says Ridgway. "This will provide Mount Mercy with even more opportunities to be directly exposed to emerging issues, cultures and trends related to the advancement arena."
