At the 2014 awards banquet dinner, set for November 21, 2014 we will be installing the 2015 Board of Directors for the Redwood Empire Section. 

We are currently seeking nominations for the First Year Director position.  You may nominate a fellow Redwood Section member, or you can even nominate yourself.  Please send your nominations to Tony Pirondini at [email protected]

Per our bylaws, we will open nominations to the floor at the dinner, and then the attending members will vote in a new First Year Director.  Please send your nominations to me by November 14th so that we will have time to print up ballots if there is more than one nomination.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing all of you at the awards dinner.
