Our chapter annual meeting and election of officers will be held during our pre-rally at Fair Harbor in Perry. All positions are open for election and we are seeking candidates to serve as President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer/Membership, National Director, Alternate National Director, Eastern, Central and Western Regional Directors.
Our nominating committee is chaired by Past President Jim Graham, along with Pauline Shea and our Secretary Linda Coleman. Please contact Linda at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in serving in any of these rewarding positions.
A mentoring or internship type program is also an option to consider that will help introduce members seeking to hold leadership positions. The time and effort spent is minimal compared to the rewards you will experience, sharing with all members, in the success and frienship of this chapter.
Good Health and Happy Travels,
Bruno Borin ACC-FMCA Vice President
