Are you looking for a meaningful way to contribute to the RASC? Why not get involved and help determine the future direction and success of your Society? Here’s how:

The position of Secretary will be filled by election or acclamation at the Society’s Annual Meeting, scheduled for 2008 June 30 during the General Assembly. Names of candidates must be presented to the Secretary at least 60 days prior to the Annual Meeting, either by the Society’s Nominating Committee, or by a private nomination supported by the signatures of five members of the Society.

The Secretary is a member of the Society’s executive committee, and his/her duties include, among others, the following:

  • Conduct the correspondence of the Society and report thereon to Council,
  • Have custody of the seal and the current minutes and documents of the Society,
  • Send to all members of the Council and to the Secretary of every Centre the minutes of all Council meetings.

The term of office for the Secretary is normally three years. More information about this volunteer position can be found in the Society’s bylaws, which are available in the password-protected portion of the Society’s Web site.

As chair of the Nominating Committee, I invite you to send suggestions for this position for the Nominating Committee’s consideration. Please send any suggestions by email, no later than 2008 April 30.
