GHTA Names Board of Directors
The Gift and Home Trade Association (GHTA) has confirmed its 2013-2014 board of directors during the 11th Annual GHTA Conference, held last week in San Diego.
The GHTA’s executive board is as follows: John Keiser of OneCoast, chairman of the board; Todd Litzman of Brandwise, president; Bob Ricciardi of About Face Designs, vice president; Joe Harris of Whereoware, treasurer; and Cindy Henry of Wellspring, secretary.
Additionally, the GHTA has added several new members to its board, each of whom bring a wealth of talent and experience to the organization: Dan Loughman of Roman Inc., Dylan Schauben of J.Grob & Associates, George Kacic of Giftcraft, and Cliff Price of Cliff Price & Company. Continuing their board terms are Fred Schmidt of All for Color, Randy Spoor of Center Stage Team, Lisa Wohlhart of Ivystone Group, and Allison Barrows of Ganz. Chad Corzine of Archipelago Botanicals and Julie Dix of FalconBlue were named ex-officio board members. Andy Bjork of Ivystone Group will continue as parliamentarian.
Board members are chosen using a nomination and interview process. The members of the GHTA then vote to confirm each member at the annual GHTA conference.
“This creative, smart, and innovative group of industry executives are committed to working hard to improve our association and our industry,” said Todd Litzman, newly elected president of the GHTA. “We have already begun tackling issues and initiatives, and we look forward to providing additional opportunities for our members to connect, learn, and contribute.”
