Folks, it’s time for the annual election of VanCore directors. Here’s your chance to put your stamp on the club’s leadership team.
As per Toastmaster International rules, the past president – in our case, that’s Susan – drew up the slate of seven candidates, one for each of the seven executive positions, after consulting with the Nomination Committee.
Note that these are just nominees. Any VanCore member in good standing can nominate themselves. Something that’s been bugging you about the way the club operates? Some great idea you’ve been itching to implement? Hot coffee? More guest speakers? A trap door in the floor that deploys at the seven-minute mark, plunging windy speakers in the basement of 889 Hornby, thence to be trucked to Mitchell Island and sold for parts? Throw your hat in!
If you decide to run, please come prepared to make a two-minute speech to sell us all on your virtues. (The only circumstance in which you won’t have to speak is if nobody is running against you.)
If you don’t plan to run, please come to the meeting anyway. The more members show up, the closer we have to an accurate snapshot of what VanCore, as a group, wants. Directors will be chosen by secret ballot.
See you there.
