PMI OVOC Election Committee News

The OVOC Elections Committee thanks all the members for considering and participating in this year's election process. The 2015 Election has completed, with three candidates acclaimed to the board. Please join us in welcoming our successful candidates, and new board-elects:
• Muthanna Subbaiah;
• Steve Naqvi;
• Yvan Bastien

The quality of potential members willing to stand for election shows how strong and vibrant this chapter is. Without volunteers many of the chapter activities and initiatives that we take for granted, would not be available. A special thank you to the general membership.

Over the next few months our board elects will be given an orientation to the board, and our portfolios. Please make a note to attend the Chapter's Annual Business meeting on May 7 when these board-elects will become full board members.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Election Chair, Colette Martin at elections@pmiovoc.org.
