The elections are coming up at the next meeting, May 7, 2019; we currently have the above members who have been nominated for roles within the ARA. As indicated above, we are missing the position of Activities Director. As before the Hamfest, we're still completely missing competition for the roles of Preseident, VP, Treasurer, and Secretary. There is still time to nominate a fellow member for one of the officerships, or if you're feeling froggy, nominate yourself!
