Volunteers Needed for Various Club Committees
Most of these open committees can be performed by new club members too, so don’t be shy about volunteering. For those with the club’s old handbook, these jobs will look familiar! Please ask Sherry any questions about any of the positions, as it seems she usually ends up doing most of these jobs in addition to her other responsibilities and it is past time for them to be done by the membership again.

The chair will read the completed applications at the next three general meetings before voting on the applicant. They are responsible for sending new/pending members information including email addresses and a short description of their interests like showing, performance events, working at shows (so we know the interest and can help the new member become a working longtime member) to the secretary, treasurer and newsletter committees to be added to mailing and volunteer lists.
