Details about Election of New Officers
All positions are open.
It is especially important that we have a President, Secretary, and Treasurer.
Duties are described in the Bylaws at http://www.stcmanitoba.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/STC_Manitoba_Chapter_Bylaws_2009_May_05.pdf
Please direct questions and expressions of interest to andrewquarry@gmail.com
If you are identified in advance, you may appear on the slate of nominees. Nominations will also be open during the meeting. The current incumbents are committed to helping new officers assume their duties.

Details about Suspension of Provisions of the Policies and Procedures Document
The document may be viewed at http://www.stcmanitoba.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/STC_Manitoba_policies_procedures.pdf
The document adapted from earlier bylaws and adopted in a rush when STC HQ insisted that we adopt new bylaws referred to above in the note on “Details about Election of New Officers.” Several provisions of this document are misleading and impossible to apply in an organization of our current size. The Bylaws on their own provide appropriate guidance.
