Election Process

The official election process resulted in only one new member, Steve Chapman, as the incoming vice chair. It was proposed that the current executive stay in post longer with Steve Chapman shadowing, and then new elections run in the summer with a completely new executive at that point. This met with acceptance from the membership.
