NOMINATING COMMITTEE:
We need volunteers to be on the nominating committee and run the elections for the 2020 board.
We need 3 women who have not been on the committee for the last 2 consecutive years, and who have held a position of leadership in our league - so anyone who has ever run an event or held a board position can be on the committee.
