Call for Votes: Glenda Beall as Program Coordinator
Dear NCWN-West members,
I'm writing today about a very important matter. Can you please take a moment to read this and respond as soon as possible?
As many of you know, we've been without a Program Coordinator (PC) at NCNW-West (sometimes known as "Netwest") for quite some time. We've managed to keep most of our events going through the generous help of volunteers and our County Representatives.
One person in particular has kept us together through her relentless dedication to the group. This person is Glenda Beall. She has continued to communicate regularly with the Reps and the membership as a whole via the NCWN-West blog and emails, to coordinate activities such as Hayesville's Festival in the Square, and to take the lead on planning our big conference in Sylva in May.
In short, Glenda has been acting as the PC without the formal title/recognition and without receiving the monthly stipend that the PC was paid in the past. She has now volunteered to take on this role in an official capacity. Ed Southern (Executive Director of NCWN) and the Board of Trustees, has agreed to appoint her to this position and pay a $200 monthly stipend from the NCWN-West account, provided that the majority of the NCNW-West members agree. In my opinion, compared to Glenda's dedication to our group, this is a very small stipend, indeed. The PC is still considered a "volunteer" role, but it is vital for us to have this type of leadership.
Please vote by replying with a simple "Yes" or "No" to indicate whether or not you approve of Glenda becoming the PC with a monthly stipend as stated above. If you prefer to remain anonymous, you can mail your vote to me by March 20 to the address below my signature.
