USA Luge last weekend elected an 11-person BOD, bringing an end to an 18-month effort to overhaul of its governance structure. The NGB used to have a national luge committee that elected its BOD. Now there will be a nomination committee that vets potential directors and puts them forward for a vote from USA Luge’s 300 members. A nomination committee made up of former board members put forward a slate of potential directors for membership to vote on and 11 directors were elected over the weekend. The 11 members of the board include Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures VP/Marketing Paul Baribault; '02 U.S. Olympic team Chef de Mission J. Dwight Bell; two-time Olympian Erin Warren; Mary Ann Deignan, the head of Bank of America Lynch’s Equity Capital Markets; and Chris Welton, the former CEO of Helios Partners and President of Meridian Management, which sold Olympic sponsorships for the IOC in the late '90s.
