In January, the Tournament of Roses traditionally announces its new President and a theme for the upcoming Rose Parade. With the cancellation of the 2021 Rose Parade as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors confirmed Thursday that current President Dr. Robert B. Miller will remain President and Chairman of the Board for the 2022 Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association, providing leadership for the 133rd Rose Parade and 108th Rose Bowl Game on January 1, 2022.

The Rose Parade will follow through with Miller’s original theme, too, picked for this year’s canceled Rose Parade: “Dream. Believe. Achieve.”

Many other aspects of the Parade and game planned for this year will carry over also, Tournament officials have said.

Thursday night, Miller addressed the Tournament’s volunteer members to highlight the Association’s accomplishments of the past year and present his goals for the year ahead.

The Board of Directors previously approved amendments to the bylaws that will allow for the rollover of all members of the Executive Committee, including officers, vice presidents and at-large members who will maintain their current positions for the upcoming year and then resume their usual rotations in 2022 -2023 parade year.

The year which the future presidents will preside has been moved by one year.

Here is the revised lineup of the 2021-2022 Tournament of Roses Executive Committee:

Dr. Bob Miller, 2022 President

Amy Wainscott, Executive Vice President – 2023 President

Alex Aghajanian, Treasurer – 2024 President

Ed Morales, Secretary – 2025 President

Mark Leavens, Vice President – 2026 President

Terry Madigan, Vice President – 2027 President

Pam Knapp, Vice President – 2028 President

Craig Washington, Vice President – 2029 President

Laura Farber, Immediate Past President, serves on the Executive Committee as well as the five appointed at-large members; Zabrina Alibadbad, Tiffany Gardner, Cecil Griffin, David Thaxton and Susy Woo.

The next Rose Parade is scheduled for Saturday, January 1, 2022 and will feature elements that were planned for the 2021 parade, including the theme “Dream. Believe. Achieve.”
