The only thing that we changed and are allowing this year because of the lack of length of memberships is the stipulation that is written/highlighted in purple. All the rest of the info stands as written..

So get thinking on who you want to be your BoD for the next two years. DO NOT post up nominations until the 1st of November. If any are they will be deleted. The poll if needed will be up on the 15th of November.

Thank you and good luck.....
