This is a preliminary reminder that our FMVA Annual Meeting is coming up:
Oct 17th – 10 am
NDSU Downtown, Renaissance Hall Lecture room
We’ll have coffee and other refreshments, and all members are highly encouraged to come and participate in the discussions and voting that will help steer the organization for the next year. An agenda will go out closer to the meeting date, and will include a quick overview of the new website. There are a lot of exciting opportunities for our members in the coming year!
Board Seats Open
There are 5 seats on the Board of Directors open. Please consider serving on the Board!
Membership Chair and PR Person Needed
We also are in need of a Membership Committee Chair and a PR person. They do not need to be board members.
Val Halvorson was our membership person and has done a tremendous job of getting us organized and closer to an accurate system to keep track of members. She has stepped down…Thanks Val for all that you did!
Sandi Dahl was our former PR person and thank you to Sandi for all the time and effort she put in for us!
Important By-Laws Changes Vote
We will be voting on some changes to the by-laws. The main one will be to change the annual memberships to be based on when you join/renew/pay rather than going from annual meeting (Oct) to annual meeting (the following Oct). Now that we have a way to track and sort memberships and the dates they joined, we believe that this will be a better way to serve our membership.
Pay Your Dues Online BEFORE the Meeting
You MUST be a PAID member to Vote at the Annual Meeting, therefore we are asking that you PLEASE go to the Fargostuff.com website and renew your membership PRIOR to the meeting (NOW would be a very good time, in fact).
If you renew your membership AFTER Oct 9th, please print your receipt and bring it to the meeting.
For those of our members who have always paid at the annual meeting…
We are NOT accepting checks anymore. It requires too much paperwork and time to deal with paper. PLEASE renew online BEFORE the meeting.
For those who don’t have computer access or need assistance…
We will have a computer set up prior the meeting to help you renew online. Please come early and bring a credit card with you.
Note that if you renew online PRIOR to the meeting, you will not have to wait in line, and your renewal will add a year to the original date that you paid/joined.
Thank you for helping us make the FMVA a better organized organization!!
