Elections are Coming!

On Monday May 14th we will have our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and potluck dinner followed by dancing.  At the AGM the club membership reviews the reports of the various positions and re-elects or elects members to the Executive.  If you would like to know more about the AGM you can review the draft minutes from last year.

To elect members to the Executive we need nominees for the positions.  The only rule regarding who can put their name forth for the Executive is that you must be a member in good standing with the club.  To help potential candidates identify themselves we have an Executive Volunteer Form.  If you are interested in volunteering please print the Executive Volunteer Form and hand it in at dancing or email it to the Nominating Committee Chair.

To learn more about the Executive, the elections process or to review the rules that govern the members of our club please read our Bylaws.

As current Executive Members confirm their intention to stand for re-election we will post that information.
