Officers and directors

All are welcome at Board of Directors’ meetings. The board typically meets on the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at Hyla Middle School, 7861 Bucklin Hill Road NE. However, because of safety concerns during the pandemic, the board is currently meeting via the Zoom video conferencing program, on the same days and time. If you would like to receive a link to join the meeting, please contact us using this form.

Officers and board members are elected by the membership at the annual meeting each fall. The president and vice president serve two-year terms.
