Club elections will be held at the fall BBQ on Sep 29th. Our current president, Mike Morten, is stepping down from his position.
We are looking for new candidates for both the role as president as well as vice president. Margaret Law, our current vice president, will be running for president. Ann Smith is continuing as treasurer.
We need you to nominate yourself or someone you think would be a good candidate. It is crucial we get someone to volunteer in order for the club to continue operating. Email your nominations to our treasurer now.
The executive duties can be tailored to suit your requirements so please don’t think you’re not qualified or have enough time. The ten people who help run the club can support the various tasks involved.
