Randonneurs USA members voted in record numbers this year, electing Mike Dayton and Lois Springsteen to three-year terms from January 2008 to December 2010.
They replace retiring board members John Lee Ellis, who currently serves as vice-president, and Tim Sullivan, RUSA's treasurer. They were not eligible for reelection.
Also, Eric Vigoren was named to serve out the remainder of Terry Zmrhal's term from Jan. 1, 2008 to Dec. 31, 2008. Zmrhal resigned to take over as race director for the Race Across America.
Susan France was re-elected as RBA Liaison.
Dayton, a North Carolina rider and two-time PBP ancien, has served as editor of American Randonneur and assisted with various other RUSA publications since 2004.
Springsteen, a five-time PBP ancienne, is a California RBA (Santa Cruz) and RUSA's brevet coordinator. She previously served on the Board of Directors from 2000-2005 and was appointed to Zmrhal's vacancy earlier this year.
Vigoren, who racked up more than 10,000K in events last year, is active in the Seattle International Ran-donneurs as a rider and an organizer. He has served as club treasurer.
France rode her first brevets in the 1980s and was active as a regional administrator under Inter-national Randonneurs, the national organization that preceded RUSA. She became RBA for the Oregon Randonneurs in 2005 and was elected to the board position of RBA Liaison last year. She was a 1991 official RAAM finisher.
