Members who are interested in board positions are encouraged to send a paragraph outlining their qualifications to the president via email. Shirley, the president, will have these paragraphs published in the December newsletter with the ballot for membership voting. 

Any member may apply for any board position. These positions are voted on each December.  Let Shirley know if interested.

  1. Service versus points.

When the change in the membership year occurred, the board agreed there would be a six-month period of service where no points would be given. When the points chair started to do the points, no one would have gotten points for any position/service during the previous year of membership because the membership year would not be completed prior to the 2013 show.

The decision was made that the points chair would figure all the points as she did before, up to May 31, so that everyone could receive their points before the show. If someone does not complete their job during the second half of the year, their points will be prorated at the end of the year.

For 2013, jobs/chair positions will run from January 1 through December 31 with points awarded in May. If jobs are not finished through the end of the year, points will be prorated. Points are awarded for membership as long as membership dues are paid by January 31.
