TNRHA Board Elections will be held again this year at the Murfreesboro show in accordance with our by-laws. This gives more members an opportunity to vote and to seat our new board well in advance of the planning meeting for 2017. Members have asked about online voting and the board will be considering that option. Officer Positions to be selected this year are PRESIDENT and SECRETARY (even year elections for two year terms). In addition, terms are up for three board director positions (currently held by Landon Backus, Andrew Fox and Rick Walker) this year and are open for nominations.
Send nominations to:
Remember - every nomination must have a second. The board considers two nominations for the same person a “second” but we encourage anyone who is making a nomination for a board position to make sure that their “second” is covered (and it is really good if sent to the secretary with a note, i.e. “Sam Slide has nominated Susie Spins for President. This is my second to that nomination”). Please be specific that you are nominating for President, Secretary or Director (3 positions to be voted on). Nominees must be current TNRHA members in good standing at the time of the election.
TNRHA has just received notification from NRHA that FOUR of our shows are approved circuit shows in the 2016 NRHA Affliate Program:
The move to July for the fourth show has given us the 4th qualifying show for the RAF, something many folks have been requesting for a long time! The 2016 East Center Affiliate Regional Champions will be held in Springfield, OH on September 8 - 11.
