2003 Board Nominations and forms
- Thanks to everyone who has been sending suggestions for nominations. Please
keep up the good work on finding candidates to ensure continuation of the
excellent work done by our outgoing and past Boards.
George Lake has agreed to continue on for the next term due to the move and
also to give the potential Board Chair to gain experience as Vice Chair this
year. This is a great opportunity to be coached by George, see how things
are run and be up-to-date on issues before becoming Chair. George will then
remain as immediate Past Chair the following year. However, he will be at
the end of the allowed term as Chair and someone else needs to be groomed
for the job. So we are looking for two Vice Chairs, either/both of whom
would be willing to serve as Chair in the 2004-2005 term.
Here are the remaining unfilled positions as of today:
Vice Chair 1 - Facilities
Vice Chair 2 - Finance
Director at Large
If anyone wishes to nominate themselves or another person, please let me
know (preferably by email).
If nominating someone else, once you have agreement, you may print and
complete the nomination form at the AFHS website (on home page). Fill in the
nominee's name, have the person sign and then you sign and date as one of
the nominators. You may find a seconder to sign and date as well or when you
turn in the form to us at the April meeting, one of the committee can sign
as the seconder, if necessary.
If you wish to nominate yourself, complete the top part of the form, sign
and find someone to sign as nominator (I'm sure this will not be a difficult
task). Hand in the form at the April meeting as above and one of the
committee can sign as seconder, if necessary.
The following positions have been filled with either a nominee or an
incumbent as follows:
POSITION NAME SELECTION PROCESS

Recording Secretary - Ann Williams - incumbent
Treasurer - Ronna Byam - Nominated and seconded
Director at Large - Computer SIG - Mary Arthur - incumbent

Although we have received the nominations for the two vacated positions as
noted above, more nominees will be accepted for these positions and if more
than one received, we would have an election to choose.
However, to be practical let's ensure we have nominees for the unfilled
