Soliciting Nominations for Board of Directors
We are writing to solicit nominations from you, our membership, to fill six positions.  Once elected, the new board members vote among themselves to select officers. The offices are President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.

If you are interested in holding a board of director position or would like to nominate someone else from the club to hold a position, please submit a short summary of the strengths and talents you can bring to the board to Trisha Bottarini at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it by Monday, February 26th.  Once we have the names, the Nominating Committee will propose a slate. We will then have an on-line election of all nominated candidates. Details will follow as that time approaches. 

Thank you for considering a leadership position.
