2012 Board election announcement

The Board of Directors is soliciting nominations for the 2012 election of the Board. Nominations are accepted for all positions on the Board; a description of the responsibilities of each office can be found in our bylaws under Article VI. We also have opportunities for at-large board members who help where they can on individual projects.

If you think that you are interested in being responsible for day-to-day operations of a non-profit organization specializing in the conservation of Sarracenia, e-mail our President, Emily Troiano, at [email protected] and note your interest either in a particular office or in general. You can nominate others or yourself, but please include a brief statement regarding your qualifications or reason for interest. (If you are a Terra Forums member, you can also see this thread and send Emily a private message.)

The Board will accept nominations for all positions until Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 9 PM EST. The Board will approve nominations as stipulated in our Bylaws and you should be available for our yearly meeting on Thursday, January 12, 2012 at 9 PM EST to stand for election. The meeting is held via skype (details on how to join our meetings can be found here). We're excited to enter another fruitful year and are always seeking new input and expertise on our Board.
