    Default What? No Candidates??????????

    We had a Board meeting last night and it was announced that we are still 2 candidates shy of filling our slate for next election. With all the grousing that has been going on here, I thought for sure that some folks would step up to make things "better" but alas, that is not happening. This is your chance to make a difference if you feel things are not being done correctly. We certainly could use more help with new ideas and just plain helping to pull the load. If we can't fill up our slate, the Board will be the equivalent of a D6 9U hooked to a 435 scraper. We'll be able to open the apron, pull the ejector and eventually get the job done but it won't be easy. Pulling a scraper that you can only half fill, is not a good thing. Dirt boiling over the sides is much more fun!

    Please give this some careful consideration.

    I am off tomorrow for the Best of the West Show and looking forward to seeing many of my friends. If we have not met and you are in attendance, please come up and introduce yourself. I like to put faces with the names I see here on the BB. If the Link Belt dragline boom is spinning, more than likely I will be out there on it. Come by and say hello.

    It is really unfortunate to have to plead with members to step up. It is also unfortunate to be in a position of being a decision maker and having a target on your back bigger than your body size. With all of the naysayers that are eagerly willing to tear into the directors for their decisions and enough criticism to last a lifetime, who would want to serve. Those who were most vocal are now the quietest on this thread. Crickets...

    Default A Better Environment.

    Hi, Folks.
    If anybody is wondering about nominating for the Board of Directors but is being put off by recent events, I would suggest that the current BoD composition would make a much better working environment than those of the recent past. I have met four of the current BoD members, worked with two of those on various shows, and had several communications with a couple of the others. They all seem much more open, communicative and receptive to new ideas than some of those in the past.

    I would encourage younger ACMOC members to seriously consider nominating for these positions as this club will become more and more YOUR club as older members pass on, as we all will do at some point.

    Just my 0.02.
    You have a wonderful day. Best wishes.

    Deas Plant.

    The 3 candidates to date are all current Board members, Jan Meermens, Nathan Duncan, and Sue Westwood. All were past volunteers for the role, each of them is eligible to serve 2 elected terms to the board should they so wish to continue for that duration.
    The remaining open seats that will be eligible for election are those of Trish Walker, whom is eligible for another term, and my seat as I have served 2 consecutive terms and am ineligible for reelection. The position of President does not go along with my vacancy, that position is determined in early January of 2019 by the newly elected Board by vote. So if that's what holding anyone back from nominating themselves, don't let that be a concern. There remains 1 week to get your nominations in to the office for consideration. As Jan has said, with all of the concern that was expressed last year over the issue, we all surly had hoped there would be more candidates that those who have already volunteered their time and talents to the club.
