The terms of two of our Group's EXCOM members expire at the end of this year (Jim Fahrion and Barb Cooey.) So for 2012, an even-numbered year, we are to elect two EXCOM members. The following members have graciously agreed to have their names placed on the ballot. No one else rose to the occasion :( so a space for a write-in is also included since our By-Laws indicate we are to have an actual "election" with at least one more candidate than positions available.
Program, outing, and operational ideas are also welcome! Jot some down as they may help stimulate new thinking and an increase in active participation.
While we would enjoy an increase in involvement, THANKS for being a values member supporting "the cause". We wish to meet more members in 2012.
Mail the below ballot and suggestions for Group programs and Outings to Charlie Winterwood no later than January 20, 2012. VOTE FOR TWO.
Option: Bring ballot to January 24 meeting.
