Commodore Gail Kretchman has appointed the following LYC members to the nominating committee: Gary Ferguson, Chris Knudsen, and Luci Lavis. The purpose of the committee is to solicit LYC members to seek election to Flag Officer positions for 2015 and post a suite of candidates to be voted upon at the October 14 annual meeting. At that meeting, nominations will also be accepted from the floor. However, it is the desire of the committee to know of all interested members that wish to seek office before the meeting so that they can be fully vetted and be included with the recommended slate. Please contact either Gary (690-3710), Chris (233-3653) or Luci (843-1561) if you are interested in further service to the LYC.
