Topic: Holiday Party & General Elections

As the end of the year quickly approaches, it is time to gather to celebrate the Holidays, network, raise funds for Hurricane Irma relief, and do a little business by holding our Chapter Board elections.
This year, we will once again be meeting at Brio Tuscan Grille for another wonderful luncheon.  We'll have drawings for prizes, announce the results of our Chapter Board elections, and will present our Chapter MVP Award.  We have invited all of the 2017 meeting speakers so this will be a good chance for you to network with them.
The menu is listed below and when you register for the meeting, you will be asked to select your entree.  There will be a tent card waiting for you at the meeting, which will have your entree listed on it.

General Elections

Chapter elections are being held and for 2018, the positions of President, Treasurer, and all director positions (Membership, Programs, Communications) are up for election.  For 2018, a new Board position of Director of External Relations has been created and will be elected.  The online ballot will have all the details on this new role.
GTBACP members in good standing will receive an email with a link to vote.  Online voting will close on November 7, 2017.  Those members who do not vote online will have a chance to vote in person at the Holiday Party.

Hurricane Irma Debrief Questionnaire

It was decided at the October meeting that the questionnaire would remain available for a couple of weeks so additional organizations can have a chance to complete it.  Once we close the questionnaire, the results will be posted on the Resources page of the GTBACP website.
