ABS is soliciting nominations for candidate to fill the at-large position on the Board of Directors that is currently held by Carole Meckes, whose term expires November 2014.
As an active member of the ABS, I hope that you will be able to help identify and recruit strong candidates for this position, whether yourself or other active members of the society. Ideal candidates will have the following qualities: passionate about bamboo, respond to communications in a timely manner, plan to regularly attend national meetings (note because California codes of incorporation prohibit proxy voting, attendance is important), and routinely participate on ABS projects. The three At-Large Directors represent all ABS members and give them a voice on the Board.
If you’re interested or know of interested candidates to nominate, please email their names and contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org, call 214-770-5754, or write to Artie Turner, 9730 Twin Creek, Dallas, TX 75228.
For publication in the August edition of Bamboo, names and biographies of candidates must be received by July 5th. The nomination process ends on July 20th.
Artie Turner, Membership Director
