2023 is a critical election year for our organization.
The SubCommittee’s entire Executive Team is stepping down after three successful years. This means the SC is seeking fresh candidates for President, Vice President and Treasurer. Our Membership Chairman may be going to sea later this year, meaning his position could open up too, though it’s an appointed post, not an elected one. The newly elected officers will come aboard in January 2024.
Our charter as a non-profit organization stipulates we must have these positions filled to remain viable; without them we’ll have to shut down and disband as an organization. Don’t let that happen!
Do you enjoy The SubCommittee? Do you want to see us continue? We hope so! Step forward and plan to join us as part of a new, incoming Executive Team.
If you are interested in running for one of these positions, please email Jeff Porteous, Elections Committee Chairman at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s a brief rundown on the roles of the officers:
• President – The Chairperson of the Exec. Committee and the executive for the administration of The SubCommittee, subject to the direction of the Executive Committee. Approximately two to three hours/month.
