Presidents Message - June

15 Jun 2020 9:14 PM | Stephane Raimbault (Administrator)

We enter this month with the typical June weather, but as we all know, this is no typical June thanks to the ongoing public health orders and recommendations on physical distancing. I would typically be writing to you about all the successful public service events that were recently completed and the others still coming this summer. However all of those events have been cancelled or postponed.

We, individually and as a club, try to forge forward in this new reality that physical distancing will be with us for quite some time. Club members are preparing for a Field Day event that I'm sure will prove to be unique in its challenges, and I look forward to what this innovative group is able to cobble together with the restrictions in place.

Another club event to be discussed is our biennial executive election. With the prospect of not being able to come together for our typical June election meeting, we faced a choice to either delay the election to when we could meet in person again, or forge ahead leveraging technology to hold an election and conclude the current 2 year mandate. A poll was issued to members earlier in June to get an understanding of how the membership would like to proceed. The results of this poll have recommended that we proceed with a June election leveraging our website for voting. Additional information on the election will be posted in Key Klix and emailed to all members in mid-June.

With the election set to proceed, I would like to thank all the club members who participated in a variety of club events and activities over the last couple of years. Without you, our volunteers, this club would not be what it is today. It has been my pleasure to serve you as the club president over the last 2+ years.
