Your astronomy club needs you! CAAS is a small organization with a big mission – to connect the people of central Arkansas with their universe!  But in meeting this mission, CAAS is run entirely by volunteers.  The CAAS by-laws limit the term of the president to no more than one complete consecutive term.  Therefore, Jim Fisher will pass the baton to a new president at the conclusion of the December Annual Meeting.  Also, there are other opportunities for your service on the Board of Directors and in the various non-officers “Functionary Positions” such as a member of the observatory committee, Program Director, and Newsletter Editor, and Membership Director.  Currently several members are “dual hated” holding down two or more of these positions. This can lead to burn-out for the folks involved. Between now and the November meeting, the Nominating Committee (President Jim Fisher, Vice President Eric Walker and Immediate Past President Carolaina Ferren) will receive nominations of members to serve on the Board for 2012.  At the November meeting the Nominating Committee will present its nominations to the CAAS membership and elections will then be held at the Annual Meeting in December. If you are interested in serving in any capacity, please let Jim, Eric or Carolina know about your interest.
