Self-Nominations for Board of Directors Is Now Open


It’s that time of year folks! If you’ve ever wondered about the “behind the scenes” of your club, wanted to become more involved in club decision making, simply want to “pay it forward” or just want to learn more about rocketry then consider self-nominating for a seat on the ROC Board of Directors.

There are three full term (three year) Director seats up for election this year. Any adult ROC member in good standing can self-nominate by writing a Statement of Self-Nomination. Make sure to include a photo. Please send to:  Xenonrocket@gmail.com  The deadline for self-nomination is August 31st, 2021 at 11:59 PM. Ballots will be cast electronically via the Wild Apricot Membership Portal from September 19th through 11:59pm October 31st.

Please consider running for a Board of Director seat. It’s a great way to become more involved and have fun while making a difference in the hobby we all love so much!
