May 16, 2017

The 2017 online vote for OSHF Director(s)-at-Large closed on May 5th.  OSHF congratulates the election winners: Andrew Barr and Brian Fehst.  Andrew and Brian will join the OSHF Board of Directors in July, alongside current Board member Nicholas Stone, who is entering the position of Chair-Elect via an acclamation victory.  Read the professional profiles of the successful candidates below.


A sincere thanks is extended to exiting Director-at-Large Christopher Connolly of Thunder Bay, Ontario.  Chris was an exceptional asset to OSHF during his years of service and his contributions will be truly missed.

Andrew recently started two businesses, one that provides health and fitness coaching to the general public, and another that specializes in strength and conditioning for basketball players.
