Slate Of Officers/Directors for 2019
As required by our By-laws each November we must schedule a “business” meeting. One of the requirements of that business meeting is a vote for the officers and directors for the following year. This year our business meeting will be held on November 15th at the Fairhope VFW on Nichols St. That lunch meeting will begin at 11:30 am. Also required by our By-laws is the announcement of the slate of officers to be voted on at the November meeting. That slate is to be prepared by the Nominating Committee, presented to the Board of Directors, and sent to all BCMOAA members no later than 20 prior to the business meeting. The Nominating Committee, chaired by Jack Gifford, presented the slate listed below to the Board at the September 20th Board meeting. The slate was unanimously approved by the Board and now is provided to all BCMOAA members using their Email addresses on file. Additionally, the slate will be posted on the BCMOAA web site. Questions or comments can be provided to any Board member or expressed at the business meeting on November 15th.

Revised Slate Of Officers/Directors for 2019
In accordance with our chapter by-laws, Baldwin County MOAA members were notified in September of our proposed slate of officers and directors for 2019. These nominees, excluding the chapter president, were approved by a vote of our general membership during our annual business meeting on November 15th. The president’s position was not voted on due to the nominee withdrawing his name prior to the meeting, resulting in insufficient time in accordance with our by-laws to identify a replacement. To explain, the nominee removed his name because his son is serving as legal counsel for our chapter, which has been named as a defendant in a claim resulting from injuries sustained in the February 28, 2017 accident in Gulf Shores. For this reason, he believes that being chapter president or Board member would appear to be a conflict of interest until this matter is resolved.
This is your official notification that the Nominating Committee and the current Board of Directors have identified Jerry Davis to be the President for 2019. This message will be posted on our website and if you have any comments or questions they can be directed to any of the current Board members or expressed before the vote is taken at the January 17th dinner meeting at the Gift Horse Restaurant in Foley.
Jerry Davis, President
