US Servas National Conference and Annual Membership Meeting

Mark your calendar and plan to attend the 2012 US Servas Conference in South Haven, MN.  The conference will be held at the Koinonia Retreat Center (http://www.koinoniaretreatcenter.org/)

The dates of the conference will be September 21st – 23rd 2012.

The program is still being planned.  If you have ideas for the program or would like to join the planning committee, you may contact the conference planning committee chairs, Jenni Francomb (jfrancomb@ gmail.com) and John Riessen (riessen.rojo@mchsi.com)

US Servas Election

The US Servas Election is also coming up.  There are several seats open on the Board of Directors—and members may also submit resolutions to be included on the ballot.  Nominations close on June 6th, so contact Daryl Chinn, chair of the nominations committee (daryl@usservas.org) if you would like to run.

To ensure that we have a quorum, only people who have expressed a desire to be a voter (elector) may vote in the election.  If you would like to be an elector and did not state this when you renewed as a host, just call or email the office on or before July 14, 2012.

If you are an elector, you will receive an email directing you to our online election site during the week of June 24th.  You may also request a paper ballot at that time if you prefer not to vote online.

All voting will end on July 24, 2012.  New board members will take office at the National Meeting on September 22, 2012.
