Executive Board consists of the President, Vice President, Recording and Corresponding Secretaries, Treasurer, Administration Chair, and Chairs of Committees.

*VIP status approved by the Board of Directors to extend the privilege of serving indefinitely to those members who were elected to serve as President & Vice President.

Carl Arendt voted autonomy by BOD on Sept. 10 serves at the pleasure of the BOD
as Operations and Maintenance Director. The Director like all other Chairs must report to the President and act accordingly as all other Chairs. (per the BOD Feb. 4 BOD Meeting)

Update Results: BOD meeting Mar 4, 2018 A motion to approve the Proposed budget is passed. A motion to approve a new Rules/Policy Regulation Pamphlet is approved. A motion to approve that 75 yr old members are exempt from community service is approved.

Update Status: Mar 17 Opening Day was a successful celebration with speeches from Officers/Chairs reporting to the membership. Most of the membership picked up their permits with very few coming to our first make up day on Mar 18. There are still 70 members who did not. We are still in the process of assigning new members and reassignment of plots.
It is my regret to inform the membership that as of Mar 17—Carl Arendt—Operations & Maintenance Chair appointed by BOD as Director has resigned his position. JW

Update 4/22/18 —13 renewal members have not picked up their permits and chance forfeiting their plots by April 30. Last make up day posted for April 28, 2018.
