Committee Chair Needed

A Volunteer is being sought by the Unit to Chair the Election Committee for our Unit 533 Board of Directors Election on January 27, 2019.  

The responsibilities of this position are:

  • To hold one meeting of the committee in advance of the election;
  • To ensure that an absentee ballot is mailed to any person who requests one;
  • To count the votes!

Best of all, a supporting committee is already in place, so we just need a Chairperson.  If you can do this, or know of a good candidate, please contact our Unit President, William Stine, at stinewilliam@gmail.com or (562) 965-9400.
