October 26th meeting - Time to Vote!

New Orleans Fly Fishers monthly meeting
Thursday, October 26, 2017
Lakeshore Bait and Marina, 7900 Lakeshore Drive (across the parking lot from the The Blue Crab Restaurant)

** NOTE: At this special meeting we'll vote on proposed changes to the NOFFC’s Articles of Incorporation. Also, we'll vote on the 2018 Board of Directors.

Proposed Articles Changes: All club members in good standing as of September 7th, 2017, will be allowed to vote in this important election. All active members were mailed proxy vote forms last week. Please be sure to fill out the PROXY forms and mail them in. As of this e-mail we have only received 20 proxy forms. Please be sure to mail your proxy forms in, even if you plan to be there. 

Even if you plan to attend the meeting you should fill out the form. Sometimes things come up that may interfere with your plans. If you make it to the meeting we will tear up your proxy form and you may vote in person. We need a 2/3 “YES” vote of the entire active membership to pass the proposed changes. If you don’t vote that is the equivalent of a “NO” vote. The Board of Directors is unanimously in favor of passing the proposed changes. Please feel free to call or e-mail A.J. Rosenbahm if you have any questions.

Board of Directors: Following the vote on the AOI, we'll hold an election for the 2018 Board of Directors.

Meeting: After the board vote, we'll follow with the general meeting agenda. Bring your fishing reports! And also a fly or $1 for the Fly Swap Raffle.
