PCA Chicago Region News

To all Chicago Region Members

Time for an update on the election process for the Chicago Region PCA Board for 2018. 

The nominating committee did meet on Thursday, August 24th. After much discussion regarding the available candidates, the following slate was the unanimous selection by the five person group; 

  •  President - Neil MacDonald 
  •  Vice President - David Angelus 
  •  Treasurer - Bob Danko 
  •  Secretary - Todd Conforti 
  •  Director - Kurt Konrath 
  •  Director - Scott McClement 
  •  Director - John Ruther 

Rounding out the board for 2018 will be Keith Clark and Bob Rath in their second year as Director. I hold a spot on the board as Past President. 

In the end, the committee wanted to create a blend focused on previous board roles and experience in addition to event management. 

Thank you to Keith Clark, Bob Rath, Toby Duckett, and Peter Faehnrich for serving on the committee with myself. 

So...what is next.... 

This then officially opens the "window" for which a member in good standing can petition (signed by at least 25 members in good standing) the current board so that they may be added to the official ballot. Petitions are due by 8PM at the October 4th Board meeting. 

The ballot will be finalized at the October 4th board meeting and then emailed and posted to the website no later than Monday October 9th. Ballots are to be RECEIVED by the Secretary on October 26, 2017 and will be counted at the November 1st Board Meeting. 

Hope I got it all...and I got it right! 

Chuck LaMantia,
President - Chicago Region PCA
