Ahhh, summer. And the end of the Board year.
Your Board met virtually again in May. We continue to plan for the future, confident that skiing will return. You will learn more about those plans over the summer.
High on the agenda for May was club elections. The slate of candidates was uncontested. Rather than carry out a virtual election with a foregone conclusion the Board voted to accept the slate. Your new Board is made up of:
Activities Committee (4 positions open)
- Vice President John Schroeder
- Treasurer Nancy Canale
- Recording Barb Cropper
- Corresponding Vacant
o Brenda Alek
o Ted Elicker
o Jeff Lucas
o Wally Sliwinski
They join our returning 2nd year Committee Members
o Paul Hart
o Pat Mullins
o Linda Peduto
o Joyce Schiavo
Know that it is not our intention to make this a regular thing. We all want in-person elections with a varied slate of candidates that offer your choices to return next year.
It is very satisfying to have some new blood joining the Board this year. (‘New’ meaning new-ish to the club and never before on the Board or Activities Committee.) They are Bill, Brenda and Ted. Please do welcome them and offer your support and encouragement.
We have a critical vacancy for the vital role of Corresponding Sect’y. This position is responsible for assembling our newsletter with contributions of articles and photos from the membership. It is the glue that hold the club together, keeping you apprised of activities and sharing our accomplishments.
The Activities Committee elected Jeff Lucas to represent them on the Board as Activities Chairperson.
This is my last PresSez. Technically it should be Bill’s first but everything is a little behind and I didn’t want to miss the chance to say THANK YOU for all the support and encouragement I have received over the past four years. I really did enjoy my tenure and it is because of you, our membership, that made it so. I am not going very far as I am returning as Vice President again. I will be here to help Bill with the Transition and will remain an active member of the Board and the club.
So now I turn over the reins to Bill. You are in great hands. Stay home. Stay safe. Wear your mask. We will meet again soon.
