As many of you know, we had intended to hold nominations at last months General Meeting for some vacant positions on the Executive Board. Unfortunately we did not have a quorum so we were unable to conduct business. As such, I decided to exersize the option of appointing willing candidates to some of the vacant positions.
Brent Hamelin has stepped up to the plate and has been appointed Area Vice President (Operations). A very big thanks go to Brent for taking on this responsibility. Its going to be a very busy year and I'm sure Brent will do a great job. Brent's pager #286. Please go easy on him for the first little while. We don't want to scare him away!
Norm Skipsey has taken on the role of Financial Secretary. Norm has been on the Executive for a number of years in various positions and most recently as the Senior Trustee. Norm has been closely involved in the finances of the local as a trustee and will do a great job in his new duties as well. (He's cheap)
At this time there is still one vacancy left, a first year trustee. I have approached a few people and am awaiting their decision.
