Greetings to you all.
It has been an incredibly cold January here in Minnesota but as we turn the calendar to February, I see hope for spring.
This month is an important month for our club.  We will be holding elections for our 2022-2023 Board of Directors.  According to the club bylaws, the board is approved by the majority of members who are present at the meeting when the election is conducted.  Your voice is important as we continue to evolve the club to most effectively lead the efforts to end human trafficking.
The election will be conducted at our February 10 meeting and details of the election are listed below.
The February 10 meeting is also important as we use the time to seek your input on how we move forward in identifying and selecting strategic partners. We will not be having a presentation or program at this meeting but will be using the meeting time to solicit your thoughts and feedback. 
I look forward to seeing you at the February 10 meeting.
