Are YOU "Ossifer" Material?

February Meeting is the time to Declare Candidacy!
KaCSFFS only accepts self-nominations.
It is a time-tested KaCSFFS tradition for those who want to be officers to speak for themselves. We only accept self-nominations.

At the February meeting (6:30 p.m. Feb. 18, 2012, at The Writers Place), self-nominations become open for the offices of:
     Communications Officer
     2013 ConQuesT Chair

New incoming officers have the option of up to a two-month orientation period, when the outgoing officer helps get them oriented. KaCSFFS officers serve for one year. No one may hold two elected Board of Directors offices at the same time, but there currently is no Bylaws-mandated limit on the number of consecutive terms one may serve.

This slate of officer titles is different from past years, and so is the timing. Here's why: The Bylaws Committee has been laboring to complete a set of Bylaws that will comply with all federal and state regulations for a 501(c)3 corporation--including changing "Director" to "President" and adding a fifth elected person to the Board.

Members WILL have a chance to see, discuss, and vote on the new Bylaws before we hold elections in April! But some of the changes are not going to be optional, if we want to take advantage of the benefits of a 501(c)3 corporation (trust us--we DO!).

All dues must be paid by the March meeting (6:30 p.m. Mar. 17, 2012, at The Writers Place), if you want to vote.

Voting is scheduled for April (6:30 p.m. Apr. 21, 2012, at The Writers Place),.
