Our section is seeking at least 3 members to make up the nomination committee to find great candidates for our FY19 section executive council.  The only rule for participating is members of the committee may not become candidates for the slate while on the committee.  This is a great position to volunteer for if you don’t have a desire to be on the executive committee but still want to serve the section.  If you are interested in participating on the committee, please contact Wichitaswe@gmail.com.   A slate of officers must be submitted to the section no later than April 15th.
