Announcements
Election of Officers to be held at the MaArch meeting

Each year, at the March club meeting, we elect two officers for two year terms.  The positions up for election (or re-election) are President and Secretary.  Both incumbents are eligible for another term, if they offer to run for re-election. 

In addition, Mark Frumkin, our Vice President, is resigning his position for medical reasons, so we need to elect a replacement to finish Mark’s term which will end in March 2020.

The Nominations Committee, consisting of Beverly Kim, Jim Gillespie, and myself, are looking for volunteers to run for these offices.  As you may know, our club functions well because we have many volunteers who give their time to bring us all a quality hiking experience.

Please contact Bev, Jim or me if you wish to volunteer to be nominated for election to any of these three positions.

Thanks, Dennis Zigmunt, Treasurer - PC Hiking Club
