The four NFBC Officers and the five NFBC Board of Directors members are elected for two-year terms. 2018 is the final year of the current two-year term, so we will have elections for the 2019-2020 term at our October meeting. The procedure for elections is to have a nominating committee of three people - one current Board member and two non-Board members - who meet to select a slate of candidates that will be presented at the election meeting. People who have NOT been selected for the slate may also be nominated at the meeting. I will be heading this year's nominating committee with Jim Karnath and Julie Alsani being the non-Board members to complete the committee. Anyone who is interested in becoming an NFBC officer or Board member should speak with one of us at the club picnic, or contact one of us by September 7, 2018. This will allow us to choose this year's slate of candidates. The slate will be published in the October newsletter along with the date, time and place of the October meeting.

I want to remind everyone that the Fall General Meeting will be held at 7:00 p.m. this Friday, October 19, 2018 at the Harris Hill Fire Hall, 8630 Main Street, Williamsville, NY 14221. The NFBC has a governing board made of four Officers and five Board Members, all elected. Elected Board Members serve for a term of two years. The two-year term of all four NFBC Officers and five members of the Board of Directors terminates at the end of 2018. The election of Officers and Board Members for the 2019-2020 term will be held at the meeting.
The following slate of candidates appeared in the October 2018 Newsletter and will be presented to the membership at the meeting:
President – Brenda Fischer
Vice President – Liz Skelton
Secretary – Michelle Bates
Treasurer – Kathy Karnath
Board Member – Cindy Adams
Board Member – Bradshaw Hovey
Board Member – Charles Grammer
Board Member – Jen Adolf

Nominations for Officer and Board Member positions can also be made from the floor and a vote will be taken if there are other candidates who want to run for any of the Officer positions or the Board. All members are encouraged to attend the meeting and select our Officers and Board.
