Congratulations to our newest board members,
We would also like to thank our outgoing board members for their dedication and contributions over the past year
Edward L Goings
The following will continue on the board. We have very much appreciated their efforts over the past year.
Gary C. Kessler
We would especially like to acknowledge and thank Chris Kelly who is retiring from the board this year and Toby Finnie who continues as an advisor to the board – both have contributed so much to the organization.
On behalf of the Nominating Committee, we would like to announce the upcoming 2014 election of Board members to serve for the 2015-2016 calendar years. Twelve of the 13 Board seats are to be elected, six of which are for one year and six for two years.
The nomination process will occur for a three week period November 1 through November 21. During that time, any member may nominate any other member — including themselves — for a Board position using the electronic submission form available on the CDFS website.
To use the electronic submission form, you must first be logged on to the website – you will then be able to select “Submit Nomination” under the “Elections” menu item.
The Nominating Committee will vet all nominees and determine whether they wish a one- or two-year seat.
Elections will occur December 8 through December 14 using a process to be announced prior to the initial date of the elections. Election results will be announced by mid-December and new officers will take their positions on January 1, 2015.
The board has voted to extend all memberships, current and expired, to December 31, 2014 to allow all members, past and present, to be able to participate in the nominations and election process for the incoming Board of Directors for the 2015-2016 calendar year.
