May General Meeting

Spring is in the air, and once again, we have a packed agenda for our next General Meeting! Our tentative agenda currently includes:

  • Speeches from Candidates for Probate Judge w Q&A
  • Words from U.S. Senate Candidate Zak Ringlestein
  • Candidates Forum Planning
  • Vote to Approve Budget for Candidates Forum
  • Block Captain Program Training
  • State Convention Ride Sharing and Planning
  • Vote on Bylaws Amendments

Wowza! I look forward to seeing y’all there. Do me a favor and RSVP on the Facebook Event when you get a chance. Thanks!

One more thing – reviewing last month’s minutes online saves paper. Look them over before the meeting here, and that’ll allow me to print fewer copies. Thanks!
