Elections for Club President, Vice President, Secretary/Treasurer

  • September 24, 2022
  • Albion Hills

Club elections will be held at the fall BBQ on Saturday Sep 24th.  Our current Vice president, Alex McComb, is stepping down from his position.

We are looking for new candidates for the roles of president, vice president and secretary/treasurer.  Margaret Law, our current president and Ann Smith, our current secretary/treasurer have agreed to continue in their roles, but this must be confirmed by a vote of our members as they have held these roles for three years.

We need you to nominate yourself or someone you think would be a good candidate for any of these roles.  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 are a great support for the various tasks involved. More info below.
