Board of Directors Elections
As mandated by the BFCA by-laws, it is time for the bi-annual Board of Directors election. While day-to-day responsibilities are delegated to the President and Executive Vice President, the BFCA Board broadly oversees those operations. The BFCA current Directors are John De Simio, Jim Ferguson, Sean O’Connell, Mark Ramsey, Sam Rubin and Sara Voorhees. Additionally, BTJA President Ed Martin, will be added to the Board as of July 1, 2019.
As President, I serve on the Board as well. It has been my pleasure to work closely with John, Jim, Sean, Mark, Sam and Sara. I believe that their commitment to the BFCA, their wisdom, their experience, and their record of success in building the BFCA continue to make them the perfect team to help run our group. I am thrilled to report that they all have stated their wish to continue on the Board and I heartily endorse each of them for re-election. Collectively, their contributions to the BFCA cannot be overstated.
If any other members wish to run for a seat on the Board, in opposition to current Board members, now is the time to throw that hat into the ring. Members can place their name in nomination or otherwise comment on the election right here. Or any member can feel free to contact me directly with any questions ([email protected]).
The nominating process will close on June 9, 2019. A new article will be posted after that date, if necessary, in preparation for an election in June. If no one chooses to oppose the current Board members running for re-election, there will be no voting and the current Board will continue to serve.
Board members serve two-year terms, beginning on July 1. The current financial reimbursement for each Board member is $10,000 per year.
