May 29 The Last Leo of The Season

Potluck and Hootenanny

The last Leo is, as usual, our annual season ending hootemammy  and potluck. There’ll be pickin’, grinnin’, eatin’ and more. 

Bring a dish and a song to share. Join the QCB/Leo Coffeehouse community for our last fling of the year.

Board Elections

In addition to the hoot and potluck,. the election of Queen City Balladeers officers for the 2016-2017 season will occur at the year-end hootenanny. 

Because there is a slate of officers with no opposition, this year’s board voted to use acclamation, which means asking for a show of hands from all members present at the hootenanny. If a majority vote in favor of the slate, those officers will be elected and we will forgo using paper ballots.

Four current officers are running for another term—Chuck Black (president), Spencer Funk (vice president), Jude Smith (recording secretary) and Dennis Iverson (historian/librarian). Bev Hansen (treasurer) has decided not to run again. Janice Alvarado is running for that position.

Any QCB member is welcome to run for any of the board positions. The the deadline for declaring your candidacy is Sunday, May 1. Members wishing to run should inform any current board member.

If other members run for a position, we will use ballots for the position that is contested.

Questions? Just ask any board member.
