We need your vote Thursday, May 16th!
We are so excited to announce our chapter’s Annual Business Meeting and Election which will be held May 16th at 7pm at Towne Book Center & Wine Bar!
(Along with a Meet & Greet that will begin at 6pm to learn more about our wonderful organization and our partner, Towne Book Center & Wine Bar!)
Of all the program offerings, this annual meeting is the one event we NEED everyone to attend. You will receive information for how to take advantage of the benefits of membership! Also, a short business meeting will be held to inform membership and make key decisions for the upcoming year.
PLEASE RSVP TO email@example.com if you plan to attend!
Our bylaws state that we are required to hold elections every two years. Electing a new board infuses fresh life into the chapter, provides wonderful opportunities for members to get involved, and empowers us to make this chapter what we want and need it to be.
Our chapter is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization which means many hands make light work (which is not-so-subtle-code for: please volunteer!) There are several key roles that need filled as well as support roles to develop rich programming and benefits for members. We already have two volunteers to take our leadership roles of President and Vice-President. We are still looking for a volunteer to take our Secretary position! There are also committee roles that we will need help with to plan events, social outreach, social media, etc. We will discuss these more specifically on the 16th.
The best way to benefit from your membership is to get involved! No experience necessary! We will train and support board members the whole way.
So join us on the 16th for some snacks and chatting at 6pm, and then stick around at 7pm to “take care of business,” elect a new board of executives, and help plan some fantastic events for the upcoming year!
