A huge thank you to everyone who came out last night for the elections — we had great turnout despite the dismal weather and have officially kicked off 2011 for the club! Pump it up!
For those who weren’t able to make it, the flyer here lays out the Issue-Oriented Committee meetings happening this month. These are important because we’ll elect the Committee Chairs, who sit as voting members on the Executive Board. Check out the full schedule on our events page for details HERE.
Additionally, during “member time” last night it was announced there is energy among some of our members to form an LGBT Committee, with focus areas like getting marriage equality and GENDA (Gender Expression Non-Discrimination Act) passed in New York State! Watch out for more info on this as we figure out the details — the meeting will occur before the end of January to elect a new Chair.
And of course, we’re looking for members who are excited to step up as Directors. The applications for these positions are now available, and you can click HERE to download the document. Please submit applications to president@goMYD.com by Friday, January 28th.
We are _super_ excited to lead the organization into another successful, fun and productive year. We’ll be in touch soon with a member survey and phone calls to help us set the agenda and strategy for 2011. In the mean time, please feel free to email us with comments, questions, concerns, shoutouts, rants, etc.
– Your 2011 Officers: Emmy, Ahmed, Reggie, and Kim
