Serving as 2017 President of this statewide organization, Ms. Casner served ICAHN’s Board of Directors as its President-Elect in 2016, as its Secretary/Treasurer in 2014-2015, and as a Board member in 2013.

“We will truly miss having Trina on the Board as she has been an incredible leader and friend of rural in every aspect of the word. Her vision, connections, perseverance, and expertise in the building of ICAHN’s new office, in addition to the expansion of her own hospital, has served all well,” said Pat Schou, ICAHN Executive Director. “We are lucky that even though she is finishing her term, she continues to work with us in several capacities and that we will still be able to benefit from her expertise.”
