All IFBW members are encouraged to attend the Interim Board meeting & networking session to be held at Epworth Methodist Church in Mt Vernon, Illinois on Saturday, November 18, 2017, from 10 am – 2:30 pm. Board meetings are open to all members. Voting members of the Board include: State Executive Committee, Standing Committee Chairs and Membership Representatives. PLEASE BE SURE TO REGISTER BY THE DEADLINE TO ENSURE THAT SUFFICIENT MATERIALS WILL BE AVAILABLE.
Standing Committee Chairs will have 2-5 minutes to report on any information updates, special dates/deadlines, projects & status relevant to their area of responsibility. All Standing Committee Chairs must submit a written report to me by October 16th, so that it will be included in the packet of distributed materials.
As a reminder, Membership Representatives are voting members of the Board, and must be in attendance. If you are unable to attend, be sure to contact one of the Alternates to attend in your place. The Alternates can be found in the Leadership Guide, which is available on our website. Please inform the Recording Secretary of any substitutions for any Membership Representative in writing prior to the roll call.
Your participation in Federation
business is strongly encouraged. Your input is very important to our
future. We will be discussing and
addressing the issue of ERA, the new Networking Program and the new Education Program.
DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION IS Thursday, November 9, 2015. IF YOUR REGISTRATION IS
RECEIVED AFTER THAT DATE, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL RECEIVE A BOARD PACKET.
No arrangements have been made for sleeping rooms. We are trying to keep this as economical as possible for all members to be able to attend from all parts of the state. We will be discussing very important issues and would expect everyone who can attend, will attend.
