After an idea from the membership, the Board has decided to shift the deadline for meeting nominations back one week. Instead of closing on the Thursday before the meeting, they will close TWO Thursdays before the meeting.
The agenda will be posted TWO WEEKS before the meeting dates, giving members more time to read the nominated titles that are up for discussion.
Of course, nominations can be made at any time, but they will roll over to the next meeting.
The nomination deadline for our first meeting is now March 9.
