Virtual Annual Membership Meeting:
Tuesday, March 1, 2022 7:30 pm
It is that time of the year again! Once again, COVID is keeping us from getting together for our annual meeting. Luckily, we came up with a solution for it last year so we will do the same this year.
First, we need to take care of the business of approving last year’s minutes and voting in the new officers and board of directors. The below link will take you to a form that will allow you to vote. Please vote no later than February 26th so that we will have the information for our virtual meeting on March 1st.
Second, we will be holding a virtual annual meeting on March 1st at 7:30pm (please see meeting information below) where the current officers and board members will report on the club’s 2021 activities.
You are invited to a Zoom webinar.
