Executive Announcements

Keith Moen confirmed the announcement from our last meeting that we will no longer use Tips and Lead sheets. Instead, we will self-promote verbally at our regular meetings. As a result, the Tips and Leads Statistics page will no longer appear on the club website.

A first reading was announced for Mike Jenkins as a member in a new capacity with Jenkins Marketing & Communications.

Our next meeting on October 22 2008 is for Executive Elections. This is a closed meeting and guests are not permitted. All members are invited to put their names forward for election to a position on the executive. Jack Rudolph reminds us that not all positions are up for election. Some are 2 year positions and they only come up every second year. More information will appear on this page shortly.
