Please note:

The previous ballot went live on September 3, the election was closed down on September 6 because the ascending 2020 president Arlene Mason, resigned from the Board for medical reasons. A new/revised ballot will go live on September 23. The election closes on October 14. The membership is given a two week notice of the new election and the balloting will be open for three weeks until Oct. 14 at 1 pm.

The Board of Directors met on September 9 to discuss the vacancy and how it impacts the line-up for 2020 leadership. A motion was made, seconded and carried to approve a revised slate with Drew Fristoe to serve another year, as 2020 President. This action allows the other officers on the slate to serve the position they agreed to serve in 2020. The motion added Past President Kevin McGrath to the ballot to serve another term as an Immediate Past President.

The lineup for the Director positions, remains unchanged, 8 candidates for 5 positions. There is no change to the affiliate race. The new slate creates the least confusion and maintains the succession except for 2 positions, as recommended by the Nominating Committee.
