Attention FARM members. Be watching your email at the end of July for information on the FARM Board of Directors election. The email will be sent by Folk Alliance who administers the election process.
Only current Folk Alliance members who reside in the FARM region (or have designated FARM as their region of choice) will receive the election email. Membership must be current on the day the email is sent. Please check for when your membership expires and renew if necessary. If you are not a Folk Alliance member click here for membership information: https://folkalliance.site-ym.com/general/register_member_type.asp?
FARM bylaws set the procedure for the election of its board of directors. The board of directors acts as the nominating committee to fill open board positions. This year there are two openings and the current board members, R J Cowdery and Randy Styka are seeking re-election. The board is responsible for presenting its slate of nominees to the membership 90 days before the annual meeting (held at the FARM conference). FARM members then have 30 days (60 days before the annual meeting) to submit additional nominees.
If you are interested in FARM leadership, here is your opportunity. Remember, you must be a current Folk Alliance member to participate.
Bob Hofbauer, President, FARM Board of Director
