President Scott announced that Secretary-Treasurer Leonard Kelley has officially announced his retirement effective September 29th, 2021. The Executive Board met shortly after the announcement to appoint an Interim Secretary-Treasurer until we can have a special election. Because of the timing, it was decided to run the Special Election for this position at the same time as our normal election cycle, which starts in December with nominations and a vote in January 2022 at the delegate meeting. The Executive Board voted to make Charlotte Murry, Interim Secretary-Treasurer until the end of January 2022.
We will be taking nominations for the following positions in December:
President, Sergeant of Arms, Trustee 1, Trustee 3, and Trustee 5, and Secretary-Treasurer
