Oregon AMS Election Update

Nominations for all seven (7) positions on the executive council were presented at last night’s meeting. The nomination process is now closed. As required by our chapter’s governing documents, the President of the Oregon AMS chapter appointed a three person nomination/election committee, consisting of Councilor Mark Nelsen, Secretary Tyler Mode and Vice President Bobby Corser. These three Oregon AMS executive council members will oversee the election. Ballots will go out in April. The election will be certified and the new council will be seated at our final meeting of the year in May (meeting date TBD). More updates concerning the election itself will be forthcoming, so stay tuned.

FINAL CALL FOR AMS DUES

The Oregon AMS is giving one final call for members to become current with past dues. Anyone who is more than 2 year lapsed will be removed from the current member list and place as “inactive.” Please contact AMS Treasurer Phil Welke at: hiophil@gmail.com if you are unsure if you are current or not. If you are sure that you DO owe dues for this current season, please reply to this e-mail and I will let you know how you can quickly take care of it. Dues are just $10 a year. Only those who are current with their dues soon will be able to take part in this year’s election.
