St Marks on the Hill Church
Saturday - March 10th, 2018 - 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM
It is time once again for the Annual State-of-the-Society meeting of the Baltimore Folk Music Society. All members are invited to join us to hear about the past year's activities, and plans for the future. The evening's agenda will include a report from our President, Brenna Hogan; a report from our Treasurer, Tom Bryson; and a proposed slate of BFMS Board candidates from our Nominating Committee. After that, the floor will be open for additional nominations, and board members will be available to answer questions about BFMS events and operations.
Per our bylaws, one candidate for each Officer position is proposed by a nominating committee comprised of BFMS members appointed by the President. These nominees will be presented to the membership at the Annual Meeting, and a call for additional nominations will be held. Officers-elect shall take office at the June Board Meeting.
This year's nominating committee was chaired by Quintin Aspin. The proposed slate of Officers is to be determined and will be announced.
Additional nominations may also be made from the floor during the Annual Meeting, provided that the consent of the nominee has been obtained. If there is no more than one candidate for an office, the nominee shall be deemed elected at the Annual Meeting. In the event of one or more contested election, paper or electronic ballots shall be used and tellers appointed to tally the results. All nominees shall be members in good standing of BFMS.
Board members serve a 13 month term from June 2018 to June 2019. The duties of each position are described in the bylaws (http://www.bfms.org/pdf/bylaws/BFMS_By-Laws_2013.pdf). If you have any questions about the positions or if you want to volunteer or suggest someone else for a position, please contact the Nominating Committee (nominations at bfms.org). Members may also make nominations at the meeting.
