BOD Elections are Just Around the Corner...
We hold elections for the board of directors in July.  We are looking for two people to stand for election as Vice President and an At-Large member.  Board members usually serve for two years; the Vice President moves to the President's position in the second year of service. Talk to any board member to find out what is involved - we need your assistance to keep the team running smoothly!
