  • Board of Directors' Election Results

    Hi everyone,

    The voting has ended and as usual, there is good news and bad news . . .

    The good news is that we had a record turn-out for a Board of Directors' election. We almost doubled our previous voter turn out!! 

    The bad news is that we just missed the total number of votes needed for a quorum.

    Since we did not achieve a quorum, our current Board will stay in office until a decision is made regarding the By-Law revisions and a new election can be successfully completed.  Thank you to our Board members for agreeing to continue serving in this interim.

    I want to thank EVERYONE for the enormous effort that went into creating such an increase in voters, and I know we will be better prepared for future elections by the lessons and strategies we learned in this one.

    Again, many thanks, Anne
