ELM welcomes Rose Beeson and Carolyne Schultz to the ELM Board of Directors. Board members are recruited by a board recruitment committee and elected by the full board.
Rose Beeson served on the ELM Board from 2009-2010 as the Congregation and Ministries chair. She will serve as Secretary of ELM. Rose is currently completing a Master of Divinity program at Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary in Berkeley, CA.
Carolyne lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan with her partner Brittanie and her dog Sparrow. She is currently working towards a Masters in Social Work with the University of Michigan.
Carolyne is interested in ELM because she is “passionate about making the ELCA an increasingly inclusive faith-filled place for all people and is “empowered in knowing that ELM is committed to supporting LGBTQ individuals as they continue to do God’s work through a message of inclusion and love.” Carolyne brings a wide array of experience with social justice issues to the board.
The ELM Board of Directors includes 12 volunteer members. We thank these great volunteers for their continued service.
