Messages from the board

From Sandy Welsh 6/5/2017:

Dear Shamrockers, I am writing you this note because the Shamrock Club is approaching a critical cross road. Currently only 2 of the 6 incumbent officers (Rita & Barbara Lowes) are running for office for the 2017-2018 term. We are in critical need of members to step up now and run for President, First Vice President, Second Vice President and Sgt at Arms. Treasurer's position will also be open, but it's an appoint position. Rita Lowes may continue as Secretary or she may be interested in one of the other positions. Barbara Lowes is currently doing Membership. She also may be interested in another position.

At the June 14th Meeting we will take nominations from the floor for the open positions. If these positions are not filled, the next step for the club may well be dissolution. Here is the timeline for elections: June Meeting - Nomination Committee to be formed. They will reach out to the membership to find candidates. If you are interested in running for office, PLEASE COME TO THE MEETING & LET US KNOW.

July Meeting - Nomination Committee will announce recommendations. Nominations will be taken from the floor. If you are interested in running office, PLEASE COME TO THE MEETING. Slate of nominees will be sent out to membership.

August Meeting - Elections & final Report of disposition of Club as a corporation or 'club' and 501(c)3 status.

September Meeting - Half Way to St. Paddy's Day picnic and installation of new officers. (Time & Place TBD). 501(c)3 & Franchise Tax Board status. We are currently working on possibly reinstating the 501(c)3 and bringing our tax filings up to date. The Franchise Tax board has contacted us about past due filings. We can then dissolve the 'corporation' and consider keeping the club as 'just a club' for those who are interested in preserving it. The current board will try to finish the 501c3 business, etc
