It’s here again. Soon our members will be voting for a few positions on our board of directors that will be vacant next year. Our Board of Directors consists of the President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Drifter Editor, Webmaster, Social Director, Competition & Safety Director, New Member Director and the Past President. The Webmaster and Drifter Editor serve at the Presidents pleasure and are appointed. Three positions will term out this year. They are President, Vice President and Treasurer. Our current Secretary intends to run for Social Director and our current Social Director is stepping down due to other commitments. That leaves the post of Club Secretary open! Note, All positions on the board are open for members to run for at the end of the year terms. In other words, all elected posts are open for candidates each year. We will also be looking for someone to fulfil the responsibilities of the Drifter Editor and the Layout Editor, a person on the Drifter staff.
Sacramento Valley’s membership has grown considerably over the past several years. We currently have 1,392 members. A couple of years ago we moved up from a Class III Club to Class IV due to our increased membership. We say we are one of the most active clubs in the America’s. We are and we are looking for members to help us continue to do so. With it come responsibilities that our events are safe, we represent our members in a responsible manner and we provide the activities that enhance our members experience. We believe that we have successfully done that, which is one of the reasons we continue to grow. However, like many clubs, social and otherwise it is difficult to draw the interest of new and experienced members to serve on our board. As a previous member of many non-profit boards, I always found my easiest recruits are those that complain how we run things 🙂
We are seeking candidates for the positions noted above for next year. The time commitment of acting as a board member is really up to you the individual. There are responsibilities that the positions demand; beyond that it is up to your available time.
I have included links to descriptions of the responsibilities of the board members below. Perhaps you can take a few minutes to review them and see if you might be able to help. We will also take suggestions from members of persons who may be a good candidate. Of course these are open to all members, both primary & affiliate.
If you are interested in serving on our board or know someone who is interested, please contact Bill Fargo. firstname.lastname@example.org or 916.802.4679
Vote, it does make a difference. Ask not what your Club can do for you etc. etc…..
