If you thought about helping out in some way please join in. The board titles and job descriptions are what we need to post as they are in our bylaws but the actual operation of the club is very collaborative and the club would greatly benefit by as many people as possible participating in planning and executing club events. You don't have to be a board member in order to participate in moving this club forward to bigger and better things. Just post here that you're interested in helping out.

I second the nomination of Dan for President and nominate Linda Pinette for Treasurer. With her active work as an accountant she seems like an ideal fit.

Thank you for the nomination. I have ideas to drum up more support on the social media side.

Also, after March, I will be able to host events and meetings at my house.

I would provide nominations myself but I haven’t met anyone in person yet so that wouldn’t be right.


Thanks again!!
Keith Guillette

Did we vote yet? Sorry, feel like I fell a bit out of touch lately!
No, I don't think we have.
Still looking for nominations if you have anyone in mind.
I don't see any for vp, or if you had anyone in mind for any of the other offices.

Happy Friday, everyone!
I wish I could commit more time to the club, but I currently have a lot on my plate. I will offer my support to the nominees who are voted in any way I can.

Best to you all
