On May 13, at our final meeting for the fiscal year, the CAS Board of Directors accepted a slate of nominees for the elected positions that will become vacant on June 1. The nominating committee, led by Nancy Bedan with the assistance of Jan Mees and Lori Hagglund, recommended the following candidates:
The board is pleased to have this group of well-qualified candidates willing to serve our chapter for the coming years. However, we realize that the disruption of our meeting schedule this spring has limited our members’ opportunity to meet the potential candidates and to nominate others.
This message serves as a notice of the upcoming election, and a last opportunity for interested members to suggest alternative candidates. If you have any input for the board as we prepare for this vote, please respond by May 22, 2020 to either firstname.lastname@example.org, or by mail to Membership chair Douglas Miller at 311 Ridgeway, Columbia, MO 65203. Please be sure nominees you suggest are members of Columbia Audubon and willing to serve if elected. To find out more about the slate of candidates, see below.
The final official ballot will be sent to members by May 25. We expect to be able to set a deadline of June 1 for votes submitted by e-mail, or a postmark date of June 1 for mailed ballots.
