Three board positions are up for election this year: Vice President and two At-Large seats. Voting will be held online from March 10 till midnight March 16 and in person at the all-club meeting on March 17. (The winners will be announced at that meeting.) We had considered holding an election for the MoPac rep position - but upon examination of our bylaws and after discussion by the board, we will continue to have that has a board-appointed role.
