Hello BAWSC Members:
We are ready to start the election process for our 2023 BAWSC Officers. The elections will take place during the month of October.
We are seeking people who are interested in the 4 Officer positions of the club which are voted on by our membership. This is a great opportunity for you to get involved in the club next year and help guide the club as we enter our 29th year. We are always looking for new ideas in how we can make the club more fun for everyone involved. If you are interested in seeing the club continue as strongly in 2023, please consider volunteering to be an officer or board member in 2023. Contributing back to the club either by participating as an officer, board member, or chair person, can be a very rewarding experience and will allow you to add new job competencies.
Please contact me (Larry Ligon at email@example.com) if you would like your name to be placed on the October ballot for the positions of President, Vice President, Treasurer, or Secretary. The deadline for getting your name on the ballot is Friday October TBD.
If you would like to be considered for a position on the 2023 Board of Directors, please contact me with this information as well so we can gauge how much interest there is from the current membership for board positions. The 2023 Board of Directors will be selected by the 2023 elected officers in November.
Please note that the board now meets by teleconference so it doesn't matter where you live to become an officer or board member of the club. It requires a time commitment of just 1.5 hours per month for board meetings and you help decide which events and policies the club should adopt going forward.
Feel free to contact any of the existing officers/board members if you have questions about any of the officer positions and what is involved as several of the current board members are past presidents and/or have been board members/officers of the club for well over a decade.
The official election/voting will commence on October TBD and run through October TBD.
