The Straight Eights Board of Directors Election will take place at the holiday party this year.Attendees will be voting for a slate of candidates, but if not attending, you may email StraightEightsPresident@gmail.com with your vote, yea or nay (yes or no) on the slate as a whole on or before 12:30PM on Sunday December 10.

As you know, we have had a few on the current board of directors announce they are not running for re-election for 2018. Many thanks go to Thomas Trimmer, Paul Lindsey, and Richard Gamble for their YEARS of service to the club. Now it is time for them to relax.

Fortunately, a number of other club members have stepped up and self-nominated (or accepted nominations) for board membership (or changing roles) for next year.

So, please allow us to present to you the Slate of Candidates for the 2018 Straight Eights Board of Directors.(You may still offer more nominations for any board position, including additional Directors-at-Large, since we have a minimum requirement of two, but we can have as many Directors at-Large as we want or need!)

For President: Lou Vecchioni ("OK, twist my arm again.")
For Vice President: Bill Teaney ("Lou hasn't convinced me to run for president yet.")
For Secretary: Ed Trenn ("...and the Angels Sang")
For Treasurer: Jim Erickson-Nepomuceno ("I have conation and a calculator.")
For Director of Advertising and Outreach: Mike Cull  ("And I am still gonna be Newsletter Editor too, so NyaaNyaa!")
For Director of Membership: Mark Jordan ("How could Anyone not like Him?")
For Director-at-Large: Paul Massaro ("Would you buy a car from this man?")
For Director-at-Large: Howard Ghee ("Wait, Rinse, and Repeat.")
