We have had an outstanding second year and our successes on the field and within the club prove that we are achieving our goal of creating the finest youth soccer club in South Carolina. As we did at last year’s meeting, we would like to s share with you our successes and challenges for the future at this year’s General Membership Meeting.
Once again, the Board invites you to join them for a Welcome Reception of light refreshments and informal conversation starting at 6:30 pm. The Annual General Membership Meeting will follow immediately thereafter.
The order of business will include the “State of the Club” message by Board President, Ron Tryon, and elections for three (3) board positions. Please see our full 2008 General Membership Meeting Agenda
The three (3) open board positions are President, Treasurer and Fundraising Officer. These positions are currently being held by Ron Tryon (President), Eddie Farrell (Treasurer) and Jeff Baker (Fundraising Officer). Jeff Baker has decided not to run for re-election. If anyone is interested in running for these positions we ask that you follow the guidelines below, as written in the Bylaws, to insure that your nomination is received in the appropriate timeframe and in the appropriate manner:
“All persons seeking election to any one of the Board of Director positions must be nominated in writing by anyone who is then a member of the Board of Directors or is holding an Appointed Officer position or is a current member of a Committee identified in Article XII, Sections 1 and 2 and Article XV, Section 1 hereof and said nomination must be delivered to the Club President ten (10) business days prior to the Annual General Membership meeting in which Board Member elections are being conducted.”
We encourage everyone to please attend this very important annual meeting.
Thank you and see you on April 30th!
