Greetings fellow A&WMA UMS members!

Spring is (hopefully) around the corner and it is (definitely) time for the Upper Midwest Section Board Elections.  The board is continuing its efforts to plan future programs, keep you abreast of current environmental issues, and help you better connect with your peers.  We are always looking for new ideas and members who would like to help set the direction of the Section by becoming more involved.

If you are interested in a Board position, here’s your chance.  Nominations are now open through March 15!  Elections will be held for the following positions: Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and Director.  Directors are elected to three-year terms and other positions to one-year terms, though the Vice Chair does advance to Chair (year 2) and then Past Chair (year 3) Positions.

Please use the attached form (see below) to nominate yourself or to nominate a colleague, and return to Kathryn Anderson on or before March 15, 2016.  Ballots will be emailed to members in early April 2016, with voting to be completed by April 15th.  New officers will be instated in May.
