NEAR Election Update

As you may know, Barbara Smith has volunteered and been elected President of the Northeast Area.


At this time, we are looking for more volunteers to run for offices to help Barbara. Current officers have indicated they want to stay on, but we lost one and there is room if folks want to run for a position. We are reaching out to presidents, national directors and alternate national directors to ask yourselves and your members if they might be interested in being an officer.


Tom Ziobrowski (our outgoing president) has indicated we have some challenges. To quote:


“Northeast is going to have some serious issues headed down the road. From participation to support.”


We don’t have to look far to realize that some of us older folks may have to do the job until we recruit some younger help. (For example: I dictated this to my son’s 17 year old cat who can touch type – LOL).


Bottom line: it’s fun, a little work, no pay and we do it with friends – that equals– definition of volunteer. PLEASE JOIN US.


Elections will be at the Northeast Area Rally August 3-6.


If you are interested in running, please contact one (or all) of the following:
– Tom Roule (email: troule@aol.com)
– Harley Soulia: (email: hsoulia@aol.com)
– Tom Ziobrowski: (email: z8iggy@aol.com)

We can get you the necessary applications.
