SFCC officials wanted

Dear neighbor:

SFCC will have its annual meeting next month (official announcement and invitation soon) and one of the key events is the election of officials for the next cycle.

We invite you to volunteer and/or nominate people for ANY board or committee positionpresident, vice-president, treasurer, secretary, trustee or committee member.

We are always looking for new and diverse ideas in the SFCC board. We have had amazing success in the last few years thanks to new members joining the board and volunteering their time to the community. Bring your ideas and energy to make SFCC an even better place to live.

Take a look at the board positions and committees available for you to participate/nominate. These nominations will be part of the annual ballot and election at our annual meeting.

Please share this information with your neighbors as not everyone may be aware of these possibilities.

Note that in order for us to include the nominations in the ballot we must receive them by September 30th. Voting will happen at the annual meeting.

Please reach out to SFCC with any nomination by emailing sfccbellevue@hotmail.com
