The third BOTE AGM will be held at the Swilers Club on May 28th at 10:30 am. A Nominating Committee (Wanda Lundrigan, Gwenda Jablonski) will seek nominations for the Administrative Board of Directors. We are inviting all members to consider themselves for nomination to the Board. Positions available are: President, Vice-president, Treasurer, Secretary, and 3 members at large. Some main functions of a Board member are to oversee the direction and management of the club, to lead specific projects and committees, and to ensure solid financial management of the budget. The BOTE Board of Directors is an active board that makes a difference to the development and enjoyment of bridge in our community. For further details on the roles and responsibilities of the Administrative Board, please check out the Constitution - Revised 2018-05-31.pdf Those who are elected to the Board will serve a one year term and may stand for re-election at the next Annual General Meeting. Members may stand for election for more than one position, but may only serve in one. The newly elected Board will be key to ensuring continued success for the club. Nominations should be submitted to the Nominations Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
