Butterfly Club Elections Are Coming!

In even numbered years in the fall the MA Butterfly Club chooses its officers for the two years beginning, in this case, in November 2018. As directed by the club’s bylaws, the President has formed a Nominating Committee to develop a slate of officers for the consideration of club members. The committee is asked to prepare its recommendations by August 13. Between August 13 and September 13 club members can nominate other candidates for any office. Any candidate so nominated by at least 20 club members will be placed on the ballots to be distributed. Beginning September 13, ballots will be mailed to the membership for their vote (either by return mail, or by bringing the ballot to the October 13 meeting). The five officer positions of the club that will be voted on include President, Vice-President West, Vice-President East, Secretary and Treasurer.

Wendy Miller, Dolores Price, and Michael Newton have all graciously agreed to serve on the Nominating Committee for this election cycle. If you have suggestions or an interest in running for office, please feel free to contact any of them:
     Wendy Miller
     Dolores Price
     Michael Newton
