We are doing some new things here on the webpage and how we handle nominations for officers and award recipients. All nominations will take place via email BEFORE the Fall meetings when the voting will take place. We will send out emails reminding people of this and remind people via Facebook as well. Please consider running for officer positions, or think of those that might be good officers.
