Annual Membership Meeting
February 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Prosit Neujahr! Online registration for the 2019 Members Meeting is now open! Please make reservations by February 4. This year’s membership meeting will take place on Saturday, February 9, 2019. The doors will open at 7:00 and we begin discussing business (of course mixed with a little fun) promptly at 7:30 pm.
For this year’s Members Meeting, we are returning to the Van Ness Room at:
Metro is very accessible from the Van Ness stop on the Red Line.
Members pay nothing for this tasting (but still need to register via our website or mail so that we can have an accurate count of who is coming and bring wines and food accordingly); non-members pay $15 each.
We will sample a wide variety of wines from our cellar and also have our traditional quiz game and cheeses and bread. There will be a discussion of our finances, membership and cellar status, followed by an open discussion of plans for the future. What would you like to have the society do – what are your expectations? The Board needs to know!
It is at this annual meeting we elect new officers and directors to the chapter Board. Only members in good standing, with annual dues payments current, are entitled to vote in the election or to attend this event free of charge; dues payments may be made online or by check to ensure that you are current before the meeting.
Nominations of other candidates than those listed on the attached ballot must be received by no later than Friday, January 25, 2019. We do have two director positions and one officer position, the Chapter Secretary, opening up for new candidates this election cycle (should no candidate run for Secretary, the Board has determined that the President will also serve as Acting Secretary until a suitable candidate is available to take over this necessary position). Our bylaws do not permit nominations from the floor at the meeting for any position for which a candidate is already running, but only in advance so that ballots for a disputed election can be prepared, although floor nominations for uncontested positions are allowed. Please consider giving back to the Chapter by serving on the board or by volunteering to plan a monthly tasting. Your active participation in planning and managing events help the organization grow – and to do so in the direction you choose. Members can vote in person at the meeting, or by returning their written ballots by February 4, 2019.
