RAA elections for members of the board of directors and for two of the officers will be held at the December 13 general meeting. The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in sTudio 7 (building T-7) in Fort Tilden. Following this very important “company business” will be the annual holiday party, complete with artwork, live entertainment, food, desserts, liquid refreshments, the GRAB BAG and the warm camaraderie of the RAA (priceless). This is a potluck party, so your additions to the table(s) of treats will be much welcomed.
At the December 13 meeting, certain board directors will be running for reelection, in addition to several other candidates. Also on the ballot will be candidates for two of the officer positions on the board.
Remember that you must be a paid-up member of the RAA in order to be eligible to vote. You may join at the December 13 meeting, before the election.
A “Get to Know Your Candidates” is being emailed to members.
Each candidate running provides background information, interests and goals he or she sees for the future of RAA.
