2016 Officer Applications

Once again it’s election time for MYD!  Every year the members of the club vote for our leadership. In order to run for an officer position you must fill out an application which is then distributed to the membership to read.

Officer positions are President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. These positions will be elected at the November meeting (per the changes to the Constitution and By-Laws approved tonight) by dues paying members.  The meeting will be held Tuesday, November 17 at 7pm.

To run for these positions you must have attended at least one MYD event in 2015 and be a dues paying member for 2016 (which can be paid at the Holiday Party in December).

Please submit Officer Applications to me at president [@] gomyd.com with the subject line “2016 Officer Application” by 6PM on Monday, November 2nd.  Applications will then be posted to the blog for the general membership to read and review no later than November 3rd. The Officer Application is below.
