It is time again to choose new officers for the next year. Needed are President and three Vice-presidents, Treasurer and Secretary. The Board will prepare a suggested slate of officers for 2009 at their meeting on September 10th. The election is then held at the first October meeting which is on the 1st of that month this year. The primary jobs of the “Veeps” are to get speakers for four months each and fill in for the President in his absence.
