President's Message

Hi Everyone, 
This month we will have Joshua Cripps as our guest speaker. Our meeting starts at 6:45 pm on Tuesday, May 11, 2021. I plan on having Joshua begin his presentation by 7 pm, afterwards we will go over member submitted photographs, talk about upcoming photo outings and have an election! 
Yes, an election. I totally spaced out last month and didn't include the nominations for next years Board of Directors! As of now the nominations are:
President: Kevin Karzin
1st Vice President: Garry Tice
2nd Vice President: Dusty Stiles
Secretary: Tom Spanos
Treasurer: Mel Carll
These five positions are the only voted on positions - The other members of the board are appointed by the Board of Directors. These positions include: 
Board Member at Large: 3 seats are open
Membership Chairperson: Open - Jeff Barlow is acting as Membership Chairperson but would like to have someone take it over. 
Webmaster: David Green
If anyone wants to run for a position on the Board of Directors please email me ASAP and I will get you on the ballot. The only requirement to run is that you have to be a member in good standing with the association. Please see the SCVPA Bylaws listed on the website under Documents for descriptions of the Board of Directors duties. 
If anyone would like to become a Board Member at Large please let any current board member know and we will start the process of approving your position. 
The board meets the first Tuesday of the Month at 7 pm, we currently meet via Zoom but hopefully soon, we can start meeting in person again! It is a lot of fun and I have made many great friendships over the years as being president. I truly believe everyone should become a member of the board at one time or another in order for our association to grow and become stronger! Get involved this is your club! 
After Joshua's presentation we will have the election and the new board will begin its term at the first board meeting in June (June 1st). 
If you have any images you'd like to share at this months meeting please send them to me by Sunday, May 9th (I know its Mother's Day), by the way "Happy Mother's Day" to all our members who are Mom's! 
Sig in to see the Zoom Link for Tuesday's meeting. 

Have a great day everyone.
See you Tuesday!
