Are you coming to our Tools and Techniques conference October 26 and 27 in Jackson? It's not too late to register. Click here for more info.The GLC bylaws state that we have one-year terms for each of our GLC board positions. We'll take nominations until November 1st and then we'll vote online during the month of November. So send your nominations to GLC president Holly Wolfe!
She will send updates through the GLC loop a couple of times between now and November 1 for where we stand on the ballot.
You can self-nominate or nominate someone else in the chapter. To self-nominate, just send Holly an e-mail expressing your interest in the position and she'll add you to the ballot. To nominate someone else, please get their permission first. :-) No exceptions. Then you can e-mail Holly and she'll add them to the ballot.
The Board is somewhat flexible. We can add or delete positions to make things work smoothly for our chapter. We do have to keep at least 3 people on the board, and we have to have a President, a Secretary, a Treasurer & a Vice-President. Two of those positions can be combined.
