Executive Board Elections 2017

In December of every odd year, the membership elects an Executive Board for a two-year term.  The Board is tasked with the business operations and strategic planning for the lodge.  As leaders of the Lodge, these men and woman volunteer countless hours to the Order.

Nominations were held during the November meeting which allows candidates an opportunity to speak with the membership prior to elections.

Some positions only received a single nomination; therefore, those candidates will be elected by acclamation.  The other positions which received more than one nomination will be decided by an election.  Any active member who is present at the December meeting is eligible to vote.  Absentee ballots and proxy votes are not allowed.  Voting will commence at 8:00 pm time certain and the polls will close at 8:30 pm.  Any member in line at 8:30 pm will be allowed to vote; however, no member will be allowed to enter the voting line after 8:30 pm.

Seated without opposition were President John Blackmon (i), Vice President Eddie Draper (i), Membership Secretary Pam Nelson, Treasurer Scott Rywelski (i), and Second Vice President Mike Kornahrens.

Contested positions are Recording Secretary and Sergeant at Arms.  Aaron Reed (i) and Reggie Sharpe are vying for the position of Recording Secretary.  Gary Zimmer and Travis Dodd are on the ballot for the Sergeant at Arms position.

Incumbent Second Vice President Beth Auer and Sergeant at Arms Ed Semlitsch did not seek re-election.
