At least one month prior to the annual meeting held during the 1st weekly meeting in November for purpose of election of officers, the Presiding Officer shall present the nominating Committee’s slate of officers in nomination for approval by members of the club for President, Vice-President (President-Elect), Secretary, and Treasurer. The slate of officers may be proposed by a nominating committee or by members from the floor, by either or by both as a club may determine. If it is determined to have a nominating committee, such committee shall be appointed as the President may determine with the President-Elect being Chair of said committee.

The nominations duly made shall be read in September or October and shall be voted for at the annual meeting on the 1st regular weekly meeting in November.  The candidates for President, Vice-President (President-Elect), Secretary, and Treasure shall be declared elected to their respective offices when affirmed by a majority of yes votes at the annual meeting.  The candidate for President-Elect shall be the President-Nominee and serve as a Director for the year commencing on the first day of July next following the election, and shall assume office as President on the first day of July immediately following that year. 


Following the Noon Meeting... Thought Leaders Meeting

District Governor Randy Steinman

Randy will be joining our normal meeting and then staying after for Part 3 of the Thought Leader discussion. Randy will be going over scripts as we begin to reach out to community Thought Leaders and invite them to participate in determining a service project they feel is needed in Parkville.  

All are invited to attend.

A short board meeting is needed this Friday, September 15th. Please let Sandy K. know if you can attend or not.

3. Dig into your closet for your best pair of sneakers and dig out your favorite team jersey (basketball or otherwise). The event is very casual!
