I think we can all agree that we have a great photography club here at Fontenelle Forest. But it would not possible without the Executive Committee board members who give a few extra hours a year to make our gatherings informative and enjoyable. To ensure that the board represents the membership, and to provide opportunities for new blood and fresh ideas, we will be holding elections during our June meeting for the coming year’s Executive Committee. With this in mind, we are looking for volunteers who would like to run for a position on the board.
Here’s the Executive Committee board positions, their responsibilities, and the names of the current candidates:
Description – Presides over the general meetings and serves a the liaison between the club and Fontenelle Forest. The President also holds a meeting each summer to plan programs for the upcoming club year. Anyone can attend the meeting, but the Executive Committee, Webmaster, and Display and Contest Coordinators are expected to attend if at all possible.
Current Candidates – None
Presides over the general meetings in the absence of the President. The VP assists in planning the programs and assists the President as needed.
Current Candidates – Alan Brodin. Alan served as the VP this year and is willing to serve again next year, but his schedule causes him to miss some meetings so he would be happy to have someone take his place.
Keeps the financial records of the club and works with the Fontenelle Forest Program Director to balance the bank account and report to the membership at the general meetings. The Treasurer collects dues and keeps an accurate record of the members and their contact information. The Treasurer helps with planning the general meeting programs.
Current Candidates – Kathleen Crawford-Rose (incumbent).
Takes minutes at the general meetings and sends them to the Webmaster. They also schedule two members to provide treats for each meeting and follows up with an email reminder before the meeting. Also, the Secretary is responsible for asking another member to take minutes if they cannot attend a meeting. They attend the summer meeting and help plan the programs for the general meetings.
Curent Candidates – Heather Ingraham. Like Alan, Heather is currently serving as the Secretary, but her schedule has caused her to miss some meetings so she would be happy if others would be interested in serving as Secretary.
The elections will be held at our June meeting. If anyone would like to be considered for any of these positions, or wants to know more about them before throwing their hat in the ring, you can contact me through the Webmaster e-mail address or speak to any of the Executive Committee members during our next meeting.
