Call for nominations for the Board of Directors
The club's Annual General Meeting is just around the corner in September. If you are interested in running for the board, the August 20 deadline for submitting nominations is coming up fast. There are two directors leaving the board this fall and two that are standing for re-election. If you think you might be interested in running for the board, the links below will give you more information on how to be nominated and how the club actually runs.
Note that nominations must be received at the club in writing (that would be paper, not email) by August 20, 2014. You and your two nominators must be members at the time of the nomination (technically, Class B shareholders), so make sure that everyone has signed up and made arrangements to pay.
