According to NABO statutes, elections for president and treasurer are held annually at this gathering.  Annie Gavica, elected president in 2017 in Buffalo, Wyoming, did not run for reelection leaving only one candidate, Philippe Acheritogaray.  Acheritogaray earned the confidence of those present, and is now the new NABO president, with Annie Gavica becoming his vice-president.
