2021 PWP Call for Nominations
Author Last Post

Oops! My bad....I withdraw my nomination of Dean for VP since he is not eligible and would like a break. However I'll second for Mary Lynn. Who I believe would make an excellent VP.

In regards to Dave’s nomination, I believe Dean will need to take a year off as he just finished a three year Director term. Here is what the bylaws say regarding Term Limits:
“No member shall serve more than three consecutive years in any combination as officer or Board director with the club.”

I am hoping Mary Lynn will accept her nomination for Vice President as she would bring fresh ideas and perspectives to PWP from her experience with Chesapeake Bay Paddlers.
