5. Officer Nominations and vote – any current officers not willing to continue should notify Dan or Tom before the meeting. Anyone interested in becoming an officer or director should also inform Tom or Dan. Our slate of officers has always been a recommendation of willing participants that are voted on by the current leadership and any attending FCBA members. We have never set a minimum number of voting members to confirm the slate – the majority of those in attendance decide. We can discuss this and entertain suggested changes, but the business meeting is probably the lowest attended meeting all year.
