We are excited to announce the nomination period for board positions for the 2019-2020 year! It has been an active, successful, and inspiring year for the current OSCWI board. Many of our current members signed up to join the board without really knowing what we wanted to accomplish. However, we came together and are proud of the results we achieved as a coherent team, dedicated, determined and encouraged by your support.
Now it’s your turn! If you have ideas about how we can improve the OSCWI and want to help catapult the club to the next level, we want to hear from you. If you found this year inspiring and want to get more involved but aren’t sure how, we want to hear from you.
The nomination period opens on May 22, 2019, and closes on May 31, 2019, at 3:00 p.m. We are inviting those who are interested in serving on next year’s board to submit our interest form (linked below), including their first and second choices. We encourage you to choose the top two positions you are interested in. If you are skilled in an area we DID NOT think of, please do include your proposed position by selecting “Other,” and the current board will discuss your proposal. Although we cannot guarantee your proposed position will be created, we are open to new ideas and innovation and will consider your suggestion.
All OSCWI members are invited to vote for the next year’s board during the upcoming First Friday Happy Hour at the O’Club on Friday, June 7, 3:00-5:00 p.m.
All OSCWI members are encouraged to vote and need to be present at the meeting for their votes to count. If you are not yet a member but wish to vote, join now! Your $30 dues will be applied to the 2019-2020 year.
Votes will be counted after 5:00 p.m. Election results will be announced later that day.
Final Meeting of the Year
All are welcome to join us at our final meeting of the year at veteran-owned Holmes Harbor Cellars at 3:00 p.m. on June 23 to say thank you to our 2018-2019 board and welcome our new 2019-2020 board!
