Greetings fellow NCWWers,
As many of you probably know, it is that time of year again. Election time is here! :eusa_danc
This year, there will be four seats on the BOD opening up. The terms of: Rob (Mcrabbet), Tracy (TracyP), Andy (CaptnA) and mine (Trent Mason) will be up. Unfortunately, each of the four of us have had some trying circumstances arise in our personal lives and none of us will be seeking re-election. Cathy (cskipper), Barbara (b4man) and Dennis (Gotcha6) will serve out the remaining year of their terms. This will help to provide continuity for the BOD.
What this means:
We will have four seats that NEED
to be filled. As for who serves in which positions, that will be decided amongst the new BOD after the results of the election are announced.
We all know how much NCWWer means to us, and that the fellowship, friendship, and camaraderie that we all enjoy here is truly one of a kind.
So I ask that anyone who is willing and able, please nominate yourself for the upcoming election!
:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap:eusa_clap Please keep in mind that only Corporate Members are allowed to run and vote in the election. You must opt in to Corporate Membership to participate.
We will accept nominations until April 24. Between April 25 and May 1, the candidates will have the opportunity to formally introduce themselves to the rest of the Corporate Members. Voting will begin on May 2 and will go on until May 19, the date of the NCWWer Spring Picnic. The results will be announced at the picnic and subsequently posted online for those who are unable to attend.
Below, I have posted the seven offices of the BOD and the duties required of each. If you have any questions, feel free to send a pm to me or any of the other board members. Thank you so much for your participation! :icon_thum
