More Than a Ski Club

In December we will be forming a Nominating/Election Committee. If interested please contact president@sitzmark .org

Our Club is a volunteer organization. It would not exist if it were not for the help of those who serve on the Board of Directors – Officers and Directors. Elections will be held at the April membership meeting.

Who is eligible to run? Officer candidates must be a member in good standing for greater than one year. Candidates for the offices of President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer are one-year terms; the Director positions are two-year terms. To run for a Directorship, you need to be a member in good standing. Each Director discusses with the new President their preferred position, and assignments are based on these discussions as well as an individual’s experience. Board members are to attend monthly Board and membership meetings.
