It's Election Time!
(No, not the 2024 election that seems to appear non-stop on the news these days--it's the election of our very own ESSS Board of Directors!)
It's that time of year again. We will hold our elections for the new Board of Directors at our December meeting. Our Nominating Committee (Charlene K., Gillian B. and Joan W.) have been hard at work talking to members, explaining the duties of the Board and encouraging members to run for a position on our Board. The Nominating Committee have reported that most of the Board has agreed to continue in their roles however our current President, Sarah W. may have to leave the area for several months so we will need to have a new President in place for our February 2024 meeting. If being President isn't a fit for you, please run for another office. I'm sure most of the current Board members would be happy to have someone else take over the position and have a hand in governing our Guild. If you don't feel that you can commit to one of the Board positions, perhaps you could run as a Co-board member with one of the current Board members, who is running for their seat again. Most of the Board members have served for many years and would welcome the help! If you are interested in running for any position on the Board or running as a Co-board member, please let the Nominating Committee know. It is especially important that we have one or more candidates to run for President, since if we don't have a President, we don't have a guild!
