Elections are Upon Us

In accordance with the By-Laws of the Division, elections are held every two years on even numbered years. 2024 is one of those years.
The nominating committee has been appointed by the superintendent. Wil Davis and Rick Lach will serve on the committee. They are actively seeking members to serve as our new officers.
The by-laws limit an officer to serving two consecutive terms. Therefore, we will have a new Chief Clerk come May 2024. The current Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent, if reelected, can serve another term.
The procedures for the election are listed in the By-laws, a link to the by-laws. Members in good standing may vote in the election and can run for any office.
