The ROC board has extended the deadline for self-nomination for board positions through this weekend.
There are a number of members, and regular guests, who volunteer to help with the tasks needed to keep the club running. However, the board of directors generally are the ones who ensure things get done and the club operates as efficiently as it does.
Last year we didn’t hold formal elections because there were not enough members who self-nominated to fill the available positions. Vacancies were filled with appointments by the board. Those appointments were valid until the next (this) election.
We are in danger of having the same situation this year. At present we do not have enough nominees to fill the five positions that are up for election.
ROC Board Elections are coming up rapidly. Five seats are up for election this year. Three are the full three year term, and two are shorter terms as the current board members are filling previous vacancies. In the event of a vacancy, or lack of nominees, the board appoints members to fill the seat until the next election. The individual elected to that seat serves the remainder of that term.
The window for self-nominations is now open, and will run until September 1.
If you want to help with the month to month operation of ROC, consider nominating yourself for the board.
To submit a self-nomination, send a statement of why you would be an asset to the club if you serve as a director. Please include a recent photo of yourself.
Send them to:
P. O. Box 323
Lake Forest CA 92609-0323
Thank you to David Erbas-White for again volunteering to be the ROC Elections Chairperson.
Please remember that self-nominations must be sent to the email address above by September 1.
Only current Executive Members and Life Members are eligible to run for the board. Incumbents are eligible to run for re-election.
The high temperature on Saturday, August 13 should be 97°F, with calm conditions early.
Humidity will be low, and the UV index high, so plan on staying hydrated and use plenty of sunblock!
Currently (Monday) there is a fire South o Hesperia that is causing smokey conditions through most of the area, and we will continue to monitor as thing develop.
We hope to see everyone at the lakebed!
