2019-2020 Upcoming ARA Election

 
The 2019-2020 Officer elections are slated for the first meeting in May, which this year is May 7th. The folowing nominees are:
 
OFFICERS:                                   BOARD OF DIRECTORS:       
President:      Bob Long, KD3JK             Nelson Sollenberger, KA2C                             
Vice President: Herman N, K2AVA             Karin Christenson, KB3GFV
Treasurer:      Tim Keener, N3VGS           Pat Goodrich, KB3YSV
Activities Dir: OPEN                        Brian Umbrell, W3PDW (new)
Secretary:      Bill Collins, K3WJC
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! 
 
If there is one thing that I have learned over the past few years in my position as Secretary, is that it is a very rewarding experience! Yes, it's another responsibility, but in my book the benefits far outweigh the demands (time requirements) of the position.
 
Before the election begins the Nominating Chairman will open the floor to any last minute nominees for all positions: I urge everyone with the abilty to accept the challenge! This year's Nominating Chairman is Gerry Rosenberry, KB3GBF, who will be glad to speak to you about the positions, as well as accept your nominations for any position. You may email him (kb3gbf@arrl.netwith any questions concerning self-nomination, or accepting a nomination from another member.
