From the Region 4 President.
If you missed the R4 Convention you missed a treat and a miracle in improvisation. Despite the awful weather, our volunteers pulled it together. Kudos to Carla Jo and Jonni and all the volunteers.
At the R4 meeting, we decided to send out a ballot to change the Bylaws (or not) so that bylaws changes must be made by written ballot rather than at a general meeting. This is to assure that everyone gets to vote. So consider this your 30 day notice. I will send out the ballot in June. Please vote.
Speaking of Ballots, we will have 3 openings on the R4 BOD to elect for next year as well as a National Director. Please consider volunteering to serve if you are qualified. The deadline for nominations will be sneaking up on us. There will be no extensions. The positions coming open are listed elsewhere in this Round Up.
Also, we will be seeking a Newsletter editor to replace Charon. The editor is selected by the BOD based on qualifications. If you have talents in that area, please consider applying for the position. Contact me and I will send you the job description.
Now is the time to start thinking about next years R4 convention. We need a volunteer to chair the convention committee.
Meanwhile, please support our rides. Competitive Trail Riding is what we are all about. Bring someone with you and/or advertise NATRC rides locally. I just judged a ride in Kansas that had 65 riders! If they can do it, we can do it! We need to get our numbers back up there!
