Annual Meeting and Fun Networking Activity
At the annual meeting, the President makes a "state of ACE" presentation. Since I've [Stephen Jenks] only been president for a few months, I don't have a lot to say on my own. But, this year, the annual meeting occurs just a few days after the extended Operations Committee and Board meeting that I wrote to you about that is being held on June 8th. I'm anticipating that there will be a lot of good work that comes from that meeting - all of it having to do with where ACE is and where we hope ACE will go in the near future to be a larger, more visible and vibrant organization. I certainly plan to tell you about that meeting and the conclusions we came to. It should be not only a chance to hear about these things, but to add your comments, questions and thoughts. So I hope we will have a big turnout at our meeting on June 15th.
Elections will also be held for officers' terms July 2012 - June 2014. Nominations will still be accepted from the floor. Do come and vote!
After this brief 'State of ACE' presentation, we'll have a fun activity that will give us a chance to get to know each other better. It's a secret for now, but come with energy, cards, and curiosity about your fellow ACE members.
Takes place from 9:45 to 10:30 after the regular meeting and is optional.
