Hello, Apogaeans!

As we wave the finishing flag for several of our board members, we now open the nominations for new members to join.

Are you interested in becoming integrally involved in Apogaea? Do you love the event and want to implement your ideas for improvement? Do you have strong leadership abilities and a passion for the local burner community?

The two-week nomination period ends on July 20th, 3 days after the town hall BoD meeting, where there will be a time for Q&A for those who would like to interview the candidates before the voting period opens. The voting period will be from July 20th to August 3rd, when the winners will be crowned! The new board will take over at August’s BoD meeting, which will be announced at a later date

We currently have 2 openings for a one-year term, 2 openings for a 2 year term, and 3 openings for a 3 year term. So if you would like to really take your involvement to another level, please let us know! Thank you!
