Vegetarian Network of Austin Message Board › Elections at this Saturday's VNA potluck
Hi everyone. Just a message to tell you all about our potluck this Saturday, where we'll also be holding elections for the 2013 Board openings. We don't often talk about the official business of The Vegetarian Network of Austin, so many of you may not be aware that the VNA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, with a body of dues-paying Directors, and managed by an Executive Board of officers.
The officer positions that are open this year are our Chairman and our Events Director. We are looking for people interested in filling these roles. Both positions are actually quite simple to handle (despite their highly official-sounding titles). The Chairman simply acts as the facilitator during our monthly board meetings (more like a moderator than an executive), while the Events Director plans the when, where and other details for our group's potlucks, restaurant visits and other activities. If you're interested in serving in either position, please send an email to Communicate@VegNetAustin.org.
The officers are nominated from, and elected by, our Body of Directors, made up of VNA members who have paid annual dues. If serving as a VNA officer isn't your thing, but you'd still like to help out the VNA, please consider joining as a Director. Now would be a great time to do so, as you'd get to vote in Saturday's election. To participate in the direction of the VNA and help support our future endeavors, join online at http://vegnetaustin.org/join.html
We hope to see many of you at our potluck this weekend. It'll be at 6:30pm, Saturday the 9th, at 5107 Crestway (just off Balcones, near 2222 and MoPac). For more details on the meetup, go to http://www.meetup.com/vegnetaustin/events/106366352/
