Thank you to all who voted in the 2023 Wonderwall Board of Directors election. We had 68 shareholder ballots cast, our highest number since 2018. Based on the results of the election four members were elected; Maggi Heyer, Ryan Zumsen, Daniel Ditmanson and Anthony de Sam Lazaro. Maggi was re-elected for a second term, while Ryan, Daniel and Anthony will be serving their first terms. Thank you to all who stepped up as nominees this year.
