At its meeting on June 14, 2017, the CCW Board of Directors elected Laura Kopp to be the next President of the Board. Her term as president starts August 1, 2017. Laura succeeds Nancy Ortmeyer Kuhn, who served three years as President. Previously, Laura served as Secretary of the Board and is a member of the Executive Committee. She was instrumental in the launch of CCW's rehearsal site in Alexandria in September, 2016. Laura's son, William, has been in CCW for four years. 

I am excited to continue my working relationship with Laura Kopp as she assumes the role of President of the Board. She has been a wonderful steward of the organization, and I know she will bring new energy and insight to shaping CCW’s future.
