The board of directors has approved a temporary change in the procedure for nominating, announcing, and electing officers this year. Because the new officers will need transition time with current officers prior to January 2018, the Nominating Committee will be presenting a slate of candidates, accepting nominations from the floor, and voting on the candidates in the same meeting – November 9, 2017.
The Nominating Committee is excited to present a strong group of candidates for offices in 2018:
- Vice President (Membership Chair and President Elect for 2019): Rhonda Bieda
- Secretary: Maureen Weflen
- Show Chair for 2019 Quilt Show: Mary Strinka
Please note: Members will not be voting for President, as the current Vice-President, Cathy Franks, will assume that role for 2018 automatically
At the November 9, 2017 meeting the Nominating Committee chair will present the slate and entertain nominations from the floor for Vice President, Secretary and Show Chair. The election will then commence. All nominations must have the consent of the candidate being nominated.
This will be a very important meeting and critical process. I hope that as many of you as possible can attend. In addition you will hear all about the fabulous quilt show that ended last Saturday and the many winners of gorgeous quilts. See you all there!
