Hi and Hello:


Nominations are now being sought for Chair-Elect and Councilor.


The Chair-Elect, Chair, Immediate Past Chair is a 3-year commitment, with varying levels of work and commitment.  The Chair-Elect (currently Harry Elston) has minimal responsibilities, other than to serve on the Executive Committee and facilitate the work of the Division in the absence of the Chair.  The Chair (currently John Palmer) facilitates the work of the Division with monthly conference calls and is expected to attend the two National meetings during their year.  The Immediate Past Chair (me) serves on the Executive Committee, facilitates any projects that continue from their year as Chair, and serve as the nominating committee for the Division


Councilor is a 3-year commitment with a requirement to attend the 2 National meetings each year from Saturday through Wednesday..  Serve on assigned Board Committees and work teams.  It’s a fair amount of work and time commitment.  Bob Hill (not seeking re-election) and Frankie Wood-Black (current Councilor to 2017) are our current Councilors.


You may self-nominate or nominate a colleague.  PLEASE!  Reply to me privately with any names or any questions you might have.


Additionally, Ralph Stuart intends to continue as Secretary for the next 3 years but would like to work with someone to take over the Secretary position when his term expires.  Please let me know if you have interest in the Secretary job.
