Three Contested Elections April 19!
Don't Miss the April Meeting!
What: Annual KaCSFFS Officer Elections Meeting Where: The Writers Place,
3607 Pennsylvania Ave.,
Kansas City, MO 64111
When: April 19, 2014
Board of Directors Meeting: 5:30 p.m. (open to all members)
Monthly Business Meeting: 7:00 p.m.
It's been a while since we had this many contested elections! Unfortunately, the Communications Officer was moving a household from California to Texas and Kansas City when she otherwise would have been posting an Absentee Ballot, and I apologize!
Thus, the ONLY way to vote is to come in person, and be a dues-paid member!
You still may pay for your membership in person at the meeting, or you may purchase your membership online, using the button at right. Current President Ty Gephardt will be there with pre-printed membership cards for those who have already paid their membership fees in time to get on the Treasurer's list. He also will have blank cards to fill out, and the laminating machine at the meeting.
And the Nominees Are . . .

Ty Gephardt*, incumbent since 2013
Ken Keller, challenger (founder and previously a Director [when it was called that])
For Secretary of KaCSFFS, April 2014-April 2015:
