July 29 - Call for Nominations - Unit 230 Officers: Under the constitution of Unit 230 Acadian, Election of Officers is to take place bi-annually at the Annual Meeting (to be held at the Charlottetown Sectional in October).

The two year terms are expiring for Unit President, Vice President, and Secretary Treasurer, and we are seeking nominees for these positions. The purpose of this message is to inform you as Club Managers, and to seek your help in spreading the word among your membership.
 
It is critical that we have representation from across the Unit (New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Cumberland County in Nova Scotia) in order to ensure we have a constant flow of fresh ideas and also to be certain we represent the interests of the Unit membership as a whole.
 
Please share this information with your membership and feel free to contact me directly with any questions you may have. 
Thanks in advance for your assistance in this process.
 
Respectfully, Richard Kenny President Unit 230 Acadian (rakenny53@gmail.com)
