Our annual All Hands meeting is coming up, and that means we'll elect our officers for the coming year. Most of our current board members -- Matt, prez; Josh, treaz; and Kara, sec -- have volunteered to stand for another term each. Benita, veep; has a little one on the way, so is stepping down, and will need to be replaced. In any case, all positions are open for election, so feel free to throw your hat in the ring, whether there's an incumbent or not. Following is a brief description of what's involved for each job. Thanks for considering, and hope to see you at the All Hands meeting!
