On Monday evening, November 3 at 6:30pm, the BOD will be conducting it’s regular monthly meeting. But it’s also our annual General membership/ election meeting. So if you haven’t done so already, get your name into Doug ASAP so he can put you on the ballot for the 2015 elections. All candidates should plan on attending the meeting and have a very short introduction prepared (if you absolutely cant make it, type up something nice and I’ll read it on your behalf). Just a “Hi this is who I am, and this is the office I seek and why”. No heavy lifting, very informal. In case you’re not familiar with the positions on the Board, they are:
President
Vice President
Secretary
Membership Director
Clothing Director
Treasurer
Member at Large (2)
The meeting will be at the Methodist Church on the corner of Cabot St and Dane St in Beverly.( large Gothic looking stone structure) We will hold the regular meeting and follow directly with the candidates. The election will be held in December via Survey Monkey online. We will buy pizza and soda for all who attend. Any questions, email me.
Get your name to Doug today!!
Thanks
