The revisions to our FoCC ByLaws approved by the membership at our April, 2017 meeting present committee chair Sally Antonucci with the challenge of producing a slate of candidates for the November Membership Meeting. Sally, with the help of previous chair Phyllis Richardson, makes an essential contribution to the cause, encouraging present elected members to hang in there and talking to other members about taking on the responsibility of leadership. Her committee will come up with at least one nominee for each of the positions we need to fill for the upcoming two-year terms: President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary and 2 at-large Board positions.
