SOS - Serve Our Section

 Lou Piccinini, our section President  and Sally Hinds  our section Secretary, have decided not to run for re-election this coming year.  Therefore, we have a wonderful opportunity to recruit new members as Officers  and  Directors at Large.  If you are interested in serving as an officer or Director at Large,  our election will be held in November.  Please submit your name for consideration to the nomination committee by September 1st. See below for specifics.  Lou and Sally's term ends December 31st.

Our section depends on volunteers for all the different activities including social, educational, technical, charity and driving. These could not be done without our members volunteering to assist in our program activities and serving on the Board.

Lou, as immediate past president will remain on the board and Gloria Loventhal, as past president, will no longer serve.

If you are interested in running as an officer  in the President or Secretary role, please contact Denise Sheehan at - [email protected]

or Gloria Loventhal, nominations committee chair at [email protected] or call Gloria at 408-823-6400 by September 1st.  We are happy to talk with you about their roles and responsibilities and how we share in the work load so no one is overwhelmed. 

We really do have fun, try it!
