I am happy to share even more great news with you. As of September 1, 2016, Wisconsin will have a co-chair for the first time in all the years of being an established state within the ADFPA / USA Powerlifting association. This role will be filled by Katherine (Kat) Kasabuske, a competitive and active member since 2006. Kat’s enthusiasm, energy, experience and interest along with a fair amount of notoriety in the country will be most welcome as a ‘colleague’ / co-chair here in Wisconsin. Please welcome Kat to this new role. I am certainly excited about this latest growth aspect within Wisconsin.
