Board of Directors Nominations Month:

Swing 'n' Country is a member-owed club operated by a Board of Directors that is elected by the club's membership to make decisions in their behalf and to represent their interests.  In addition, certain members of the board hold officer positions, which are President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.  We currently have one completely open board member position.  We also will have come April, the Vice President officer position open and three current board members up for re-election.  If you are a current club member in good standing and would like to be a part of the decision-making process (instead of just voting for those to make decisions for you), please let either of our two current executive officers (Don Moeller, President, or Marcia Emmett, Vice President) know , and they will be happy to answer all of your questions and to guide you through the simple process to be a nominee.
