Election Results for Council 2017–2018, and More

We had three positions on the ballot, all running unopposed, and all accepted by all 11 voters of the eligible 32 who received ballots:

  • Heather Shelly, Secretary
  • Pat Martz, Treasurer
  • Maryann Bowen, Nominations Committee member

A turnout of 34% is pretty decent. Thank you to all who voted.

In addition to the elected seats, we have two succession seats—the President becomes our Immediate Past President, and the Vice President becomes President. No one ran for Vice President, which now becomes the first big issue of our new Council. Our planning year runs from  July 1 to June 30, so this roster will be effective on July 1.

Executive Council, 2017–2018

  • Alison Phillips, President
  • —No Vice President—
  • Heather Shelly, Secretary
  • Pat Martz, Treasurer
  • Sharon McDonnell, Immediate Past President

Nominations Committee, 2017–2018

  • Sharon McDonnell, Chair
  • Maryann Bowen

Volunteering With STC-SM

Council positions are volunteer positions, but you don’t have to be on the council to be helpful. What could you do?

  • Help at the registration desk for a program.
  • Write for this blog; for example, you could recap an event that you attend or write a book review.
  • Host a networking meeting.
  • Send a program idea.
  • Offer to arrange for a program site.

We will have our end-of-the-year potluck on Sunday, June 25. Members are welcome, but you must register to attend. July is our quiet month. We will do our program planning in August, so if you would like to help, or have ideas for the coming year, send an email to your council.
