Barriere Senior’s Society in need of new board members to step forward

Nominating committee needed for upcoming Annual General Meeting, Feb. 5

Members of the Barriere and District Senior’s Society were disappointed at their Jan. 8, general meeting when no one stepped forward to participate on the nominating committee for their upcoming Annual General Meeting, Feb 5.

“We need three people on our nominating committee,” said retiring president Monica Ireland, “No one stepped forward, and now we are unsure what to do.”

Ireland says that the annual election of officers is only a few weeks away and it is important that a full slate be elected for the 2015 term.

“Both the president and vice-president positions will be open as myself and Liz Gilbertson are stepping down this year,” said Ireland, “And of course there are director positions, secretary and treasurer.  We need the nominating committee to find out who will let their names stand again and who will step forward for the first time.”

Ireland says it is imperative to keep a full board of directors for the Society as it manages the Barriere Seniors Hall and the events held there.  If you would like to help please call Monica Ireland at 250-672-2477.
