Join our Steering Committee! Upcoming September Elections!

Hi Friends!

Hope you’re staying cool in these sweaty dog days of summer.

Believe it or not, summer is flying by and it’s time to start thinking about this year’s Steering Committee elections. They will take place at our September chapter meeting. We are so excited about this election. We encourage anyone interested in getting more involved with our chapter to think of nominating yourself! Or if you prefer, let somebody else nominate you instead. You must be a paid HLAA National member in order to vote in the election, as well as to serve on the SC.

Other requirements? A willingness to attend about half a dozen SC meetings after our regular HLAA-LA ones. The use of email for communication with the rest of the members of the SC. That way we can get a lot done long distance. If you have any questions at all, please ask here, or at our next meeting. You can also approach any of us SC members. We will have openings and are so eager to welcome new people! 🙂 Pat and I will be talking about this topic at our August 22nd Meeting. Our President Lisa is out of town. We will go into more detail.

This year we are losing several fantastic members to well-needed “life” break and a move. Thank you so much and huge kudos go out to Katherine, Danny, Georgia, and good luck on your move to Colorado, Ram! We will miss these folks and their hard work through the years. But we also can’t wait to work with new people! We decided for ease of communication to keep the Steering Committee to seven members this time around. There will be a total of four openings, (Lisa is up for re-election). We run for two year staggered terms.

The health of our HLAA-LA Chapter is based on our willingness to change and welcome new faces and new ideas. We really want many of you to consider taking this on.! Come on board and make some noise! 🙂

Some of you may instead wish to help the group and NOT run for office. That’s great too! We will be having a number of smaller committees and tasks that need doing. Your help of any degree is much appreciated.

I will be posting about our next meeting August 22nd this weekend.

Try to stay cool. Hope to see most of you next week!
