As established by the Board and at various Membership meetings, Board Members should make every effort to attend the annual meeting held each October 22 in Jacksonville, N.C. Naturally, issues arise from time to time that may prevent 100% attendance, but if you know you can’t attend on a fairly regular basis, maybe wait to serve until you can. Additionally, approximately 8 to 10 eBoard meetings are held online. Additional meetings and requirements may from time to time be imposed upon Board Members, and each should be ready and able to assume those responsibilities.
