We will elect officers for the 2017-18 term at November's meeting. Nominations to-date are:
President – Bill Welsch
1st VP for Programs – Bruce Venter
2nd VP for Membership – Woody Childs
Paymaster – Art Ritter
Scribe / Historian – Bill Seward
Publicity / Web Master – Mark Groth
At Large – Charlotte Forrester
At Large – Jerry Rudd.
Walt Pulliam has graciously agreed to conduct the election at our November meeting, as well as accept any self or other nominations. These can be sent to Walt at firstname.lastname@example.org or can be made at the meeting.
But all the board members realize that we can’t / won’t / shouldn’t do our jobs forever. Regardless of who is elected in November, we offer the following proposal. Any member who is interested in a specific office in the future is encouraged to volunteer as an aide or shadow or apprentice to that officer to learn and offer suggestions. This is not meant to increase the board size, but rather to identify and orient future ARRT leaders, as well as provide occasionally needed backup to the incumbent. Let’s see if this approach works. Please feel free to speak to whomever you wish.
