    Hello AAAA members,

    It’s been an honor serving as your Vice President this last year, 2021. Life has thrown me some challenges lately, therefore I can’t guarantee to have the time necessary to fulfill that role in the next term.

    That said I would like to nominate Pat Riggins to replace me as Vice President. The first time I remember meeting Pat, was at one of the swap meets were she introduced herself and promptly asked “How can I help”. Pat has been a member of the club for 1.5 years, and has been in the hobby for over 40 years. Plus she has had a long professional carrier with Georgia Pacific, which will help with club business.

    I nominate Pat Riggins for the Vice President position.

    I would like to nominate myself for one of the Member At-Large positions

    William Beard

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>I would like to second for pat as VP and for Paul as one of the at large positions.</p>

    Pat Riggins

    Thanks Paul! I will gladly accept the nomination. I would be happy to serve as Vice President.
