It is that time of year to elect chapter officers. According to the bylaws, I am ineligible to run for Chapter President due to a 3-year limit. So, we need someone to step up and volunteer to fill the President position.
Additionally, Bob Little would like to move on from being the Vice President in charge of programs.
To keep this chapter going, we need volunteers – and not just the same few who have filled the officer and committee positions for the past two decades. If you have never served in one of our chapter leadership positions, or if you have but it has been a long time, please consider volunteering for a position and spent just a couple hours a month to ensure that the chapter has good meetings for us all to enjoy.
