The January general meeting was supposed to be the chapter annual meeting. Unfortunately, due to the weather, the annual meeting has been moved to the February meeting on the 9th. Two key things happen at the annual membership meeting: electing members to the Board of Directors and approving the annual budget. In addition, there will be discussion on an amendment to the Chapter By-laws with a vote to be held at the March general meeting (see below).
The current members attending the meeting usually elect people to be Directors on the chapter board from a ballot created by the current board. A person cannot be nominated without their consent.
- A board director must be a member of both the chapter and the national organization. (Scholarships available)
- The term of office is 3 years.
- Basic computer skills are required.
- Training will be provided to willing learners.
The board is supposed to have at least seven people according to the chapter by-laws. At this time there are only five active directors.
The current Directors have not been able to find members that are willing and able to serve on the local chapter board despite multiple requests for volunteers.
As a result we have no slate of officers for election.
