    Thank you for posting.

    How are Board of Directors elected and when

    1. Jim Sewell

      As I understand it, No directors are elected directly. The President & Vice President, who are elected by members, serve on the board. Any vacancy among the other 5 seats are nominated & voted on by the remaining board members.

  3. W. L. Brown

    I would like to thank Harry Faircloth for his service. He is an outstanding president

  4. Scotty Lawson

    When is the next board meeting?
