To all members:
At the last Board of Directors meeting we discussed staggering the terms for our officers to prevent a ‘all new Board’ (as happened last election) in order to provide some continuity for the Board. After more discussion, the Board has decided this is an opportune time to start the process with the election of a full two-year term President. We will determine later how to stagger the rest of the terms.
As per the bylaws, we need an Elections and Nominations Committee. Therefore, I have appointed all members of the Board to that committee. The committee is responsible for presenting nominations through November 15th. From November 16 through November 30th any member may nominate any member, including themselves, for President.
I will continue to fulfill the duties of the President until the end of the year, at which time the new President will take office at which time I will resume my duties as Executive Vice President.
NOTE: This election is only for the Presidency!
