Other than slight edits and changing the year from 2008 to 2009 to 2010 ... and NOW 2015, this
page is unchanged from the year before. Is this a good or a bad thing? That is for you to
Please do not take this too lightly, this is our community (act
local). As our country (think global) is ran by those we elect, they in turn run our country in
trust for US. Ensure YOUR interests are being met, be active in your community. Know what is going
on. Do not believe one sided word bursts to know. KNOW. That includes from me as well.
We are only human.
The Annual Meeting is held February of each year ~ OK, so no it has not, but it isn't because of
trying ... get active in the community and understand what that meant ... YAY!!! February 2007 was my first
meeting. The only reason I went was because of .... hmmm ... I created a page for this, let me know if
you would like the link to it. Send me an e-mail at TarponRiverWatch@gmail.com (Subject Line: RiverWatch - and the
The position of the individual board member is NOT elected, but assigned once elections
are complete. There are five positions maximum, three minimum. Meaning, if only four people run for the
board - the top three people running are automatically elected and the fourth is a "stand-in" to re-place any board
member who steps down or is duly elected out from serving the remainder of their term. I am on the board
(2007) because our management team / board members did not know this rule meaning only four people
volunteered that year and the seated board said we MUST have one more ... and I was it
~ :-( well, I was the one everyone in the room was looking at *stop looking at me* BUT, all things for a
reason and this one was very good ~ :-)
NOTE: 2007 saw two board members step down with no one else stepping up
:-(so it IS good I was at that meeting)
Added 2/27/08: The above is left as is, as the board is as it was the
beginning of their term ... Feb. 2007
Added 1/4/2010: The above has been left as it was originally written except
for adding the date of the next annual meeting ... Feb. 16, 2010 and a link (here) to the story of how I ended up on the board.
Added 12/9/2010: Changed the 2010 dates to 2011 ...
Added 1/25/11 - Meeting is the 28th - not the 16th (and as of the meeting
1/24/11, we have FIVE people on the board again :-) Ed and I voted for, Bill voted against ... (I feel this way if
anything happens and Ed, Bill or I can not attend ~ the meeting will still go on ~ WELCOME KATHLEEN & FRANK!!!!)
Added 2/1/2011 - I trust everyone has
received their annual Ameri-Tech "Notice of Annual Meeting and Election of Directors" mailing. If I get
softcopy I will post it here. It is very important to either attend the annual meeting or to fill out and
send in your proxy.
Yes - there is no list of volunteers (I hope the sitting board volunteers to stay sitting if no one
else asks to dance) but there is a "Notice of Intent to be a candidate for the Board of Directors" ... maybe this
is something that sould be included in the mailings during the year ... ? Just thinking out loud.
If you would like to run for the board ~ YAY!!! I look forward to meeting you :-)
NOTE: You MUST be willing (AND able) to attend all monthly meetings.
