In 2019-20 I had been on the board as the Secretary, and in that time I had helped with the boards resolution to pass a new by-law amendment to allow the board to raise dues. I have also helped the board with other issues that have come up during Covid-19.  I have handled the job of taking the minutes for each meeting along with setting up the audio equipment for our meetings.I look forward to serving on the board for another term.
