Our esteemed treasurer, Mike Edstrom, has tendered his resignation due to health issues that he must focus on and take care of. I accepted his resignation and wish Mike all the best as he works to regain his health.
Mike has spoken to member Bonnie Neuren about stepping in to fill the role, pending an election by the Membership. Bonnie is more than qualified to perform these duties and has been filling in to assist with our financial reports and other responsibilities. Our bylaws require at least 15 days notice of said election, so we will conduct the election to fill this vacancy for the remainder of this term at our October 1 General meeting. Bonnie has offered to continue in this role, should she be nominated and elected. We will also take nominations from the floor. This post will serve as formal notification to the Membership.
