CPA Annual Meeting: Nominations for CPA Officers Due
The Chesapeake Paddlers Association is a volunteer organization, and the people who volunteer the most are the elected officers: The Coordinator, Treasurer, Membership Secretary, and the Steering Committee members. Now is the time to tell us who you think should play an active part in steering the club’s activities. As always in recent years, in addition to balloting at the Annual Meeting on Sunday, November 6 at the T. Howard Duckett Recreation Center in Laurel, MD, you will be able to nominate and vote online. Nominate someone who you think will help play an active role over the next year to vote on issues, create fun activities, and keep the participation of the club lively through 2017. [More]
