Please consider standing for a position. We need volunteers to keep the organization going. We are only as good as the volunteers we have, and can do a lot more for the community with a strong volunteer base. If you have any questions about what being a board member entails, please send an email to Kathleen at [email protected] and she will be happy to answer your questions.
What happens next?
If there is only one nomination for a position, that person will be accepted by acclamation.
If there is more than one nomination for a position, there will be a vote. All members in good standing by May 8th will be able to take part in our voting process.
Voting is conducted using SimplyVoting, a third party, online voting mechanism. Our voting period is from May 20th to May 27th.
