Letter from the President - September 2014

On behalf of your BOD it is my hope that all ASC members and their families enjoyed a relaxing and healthy summer break.

Although monthly membership meetings are suspended during July and August, your BOD has remained fully involved in both current day-to-day club operations and future event and facilities planning which you will learn more about in the department monthly website updates and during the BOD department presentations at the September 11, 2014 member's meeting.

As you will have noted elsewhere on the website there will also be a special presentation immediately following the September member's meeting.

Also, according to the ASC By-Laws, as President I am obliged to appoint a three member Nominating Committee concerning the election of Officers for the year 2015. I am pleased to announce that Kip Sternberg, Steve Harsfeld and Cheryl Crawford have accepted that assignment with Kip Sternberg serving as Committee Chairman.

With respect to said nominations please note the following:
