Board of Directors

Thank you to our online sponsors and corporate members

Our Board and Committees are made up of a group of dedicated volunteers who’s backgrounds are as varied as our membership. Board members are elected for two-year terms and officers are elected or appointed for one-year terms. Nominations are made in February and Elections are held in the Spring with the new board taking office at the beginning of our calendar year, July 1. We are always looking to involve new people. Consider serving on the Board of Directors. Start by shooting us a quick e-mail.
