News to Use

Greetings Friends,
 
Friends of Red Rocks Election News - Two Vacancies on the Board of Directors
 
February 6th, 2016 - 10 AM - Election and Annual Membership Meeting.
 
We have set a date for our annual general membership meeting and board of directors' election at the Morrison Town Hall. This year we have two vacancies up for election.
 
Current board members are: Jeff Brown, Michael Anslinger, Rachelle Stubby, Rusty Lea and Tricia Kalish. Michael and Tricia will be finishing their two-year term at the end of the year.

Please see the candidate statements for those who will be running for this years open board positions:  Candidate Statements

Please remember you must be registered as a member in Volgistics to vote.  Also, there is an annual membership donation required for voting which is $10 for the year. 

In addition to the board election and season recap we have an additional vote to approve amended bylaws for our organization.  The intention of the changes in our bylaws are to improve our accountability, efficiency, and protect us from indemnification.  Here are the new proposed bylaws: Bylaws 2016

Thank you,
Board of Directors, Friends of Red Rocks
