Time to throw your hat in the ring!

October 17, 2013

Nominations for next year’s Board of Directors are now open.

It’s that time of year when we elect a new slate of officers to run this club. All NCR members are eligible and we encourage as wide a range of participation as possible.

New candidates should not feel intimidated. The NCR Bylaws provide that we elect half of our Region’s officers every year, and that we alternate them in pairs, in order to provide continuity from year to year. So there will always be experienced people present to help you get acclimated to your new position. Even if you’ve volunteered before and were not elected, we urge you now to try again. Some of our current officers would like to retire!

This club, as always, needs all the eager volunteers it can get.  Got a new idea?  Want to see where the money goes? Want to help us get it right when it comes to event planning and budgeting, making sure that we spend your money on the “right” things?

Now’s your chance. You can be a part of the decision-making process.

Open Positions for 2014:

  • Regional Executive (currently held by Rex Deffenbaugh)
  • Secretary (currently held by Jerry Pell)
  • Member-at-Large (Wayne Quick’s seat)
  • Member-at-Large (Neal Harrison’s Seat)

Nominations must be written. You must nominate yourself in writing and have 3 other NCR members sign the document. Each nominee and signatory should provide his or her membership number, but if for some reason you don’t know it, we can look it up. Just give your completed nomination document to any current Board member or send it to Ginny Condrey at the Region Office before the next Board of Director’s meeting.

Nominations close at the end of the next (November 20th) Board meeting.
