2022 Annual Membership Meeting

Colorado West Unit 364 will hold its annual membership meeting in Grand Junction, Colorado, at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel during the Peach Sectional. The meeting will be held following the morning session on Saturday, August 27, 2022.

The annual membership meeting is historically fairly short, 20-25 minutes, and we will provide lunch for those unit members attending the meeting.

The agenda will include a reading of the minutes from the 2021 annual meeting, the Treasurer’s report for fiscal year 2021, the election of three directors for a three-year term, and other business as necessary.

Three positions on the Board will be open for election. Don Squires from Durango has served the Unit for six years but under our bylaws, a director must step down after serving two full terms. We will miss Don’s ability to help resolve issues and his representation of the southern corner of the unit. So his seat is vacant.

The other two seats on the Board are currently held by incumbents who are eligible for another term: Randy Field from Grand Junction and Greg Westerwick from Durango. Both have indicated they are willing to serve another term. We encourage local clubs and Unit members to nominate candidates as well.

During the annual meeting, nominations from the floor shall be accepted, provided said nomination is seconded. No member having a financial interest in any bridge club shall be eligible for nomination and/or election to the Board, nor can any such member be appointed to the Board except in an honorary and non-voting capacity.

Members are permitted to vote absentee. An absentee ballot is attached to this Notice. If you were unable to open and return, you may contact Keith Nichols at keith@paonia.com.. Please read Section 5.6 of the Bylaws in its entirety for the rules regarding absentee voting. Section 5.6 may be found online at: http://www.unit364.org/unit-364-bylaws. Bear in mind that your ACBL Member Number must accompany your absentee ballot.
