April 2017 was supposed to have been when the Chapter elected new Officers. We somewhat overlooked pushing the issue.
On a related matter, the Chapter members should decide if they desire to be Chapter Officers. The Officer positions consist
of President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary.
At Federal and State levels elected Offices are usually held for two or four years. The Chapter may consider invoking a similar policy rather than having to hold annual elections.
We should, as a Chapter, schedule an election soon so that we remain legal in accordance with IPMS National policy.
Heads up alert! The movie Dunkirk hits the theaters on July 21!
