Important Notice To All Members


Our next schedule meeting is Monday March 10, 2014. As we mentioned at the February meeting we will be going to the NW Dispatch Center for a tour.

We have about 10 openings remaining for the tour so if anyone who has not already signed up and would like to go please let us know as soon as possible. We will be departing at 7:00 PM sharp. 

It was the boards  intention to forgo the actual March meeting due to the tour, however.................There are a few things that we need to discuss with membership so the board has decided that it is important that we hold a very brief meeting starting at 6:30 PM.

We hope that you all will be able to attend, on Monday March 10, 2014 at 6:30 PM at the Police station in the Community Room.

The agenda will be short and sweet. We will be to accepting nominations for the position of Vice President and Corresponding Secretary, both positions are up for election April 1, 2014.

Both Christine and John are doing a tremendous job in their respective positions and it is my hope that they will once again seek these positions in April. 

Both the position of VP and Corresponding Secretary were interim positions that were filled by both John and Christine in April of 2013. Our Bylaws are very specific in so much as that we now need to elect officers for a two year term for both these positions in an even number year.

 As most of you know, our organization has changed over the last two years; the requirements for being an officer have evolved as well.

In addition to attending the meetings on a regular basis, it is expected that officers volunteer for events as needed. Both positions require being able to use Microsoft Office, Word and Excel Spreadsheets as well as the ability to format correspondence as needed and help with the Web content, so please bear this in mind when nominating someone to either position.

Also, we will be looking for nominations for Volunteer of the Year. We will be sending out a list of all the members who volunteered at events in 2013 to help you decide who is worthy of this coveted award.

One last thing if you have not paid your annual $10 dues please do so as soon as possible, only members who have paid their annual dues are eligible to vote in elections. 

We will accept nominations on March 10, and up to the evening of the April meeting.
