Since our last newsletter when I made a plea for leadership changes, Michelle Raths has "stepped up to the plate" as treasurer. She has a lot of experience as an accounts specialist at MNDOT located in Morris. We are grateful to her for volunteering to handle this huge responsibility. Verna Zeiher will continue to handle membership for a while, with the hope that someone will assume this responsibility. I am hoping that someone will assume the President position in the near future. I will still be available to consult, if needed, but we need new ideas and new energy.
Arc Stevens County is still discussing whether to become a part of Arc Minnesota or to become an independent chapter. We are consulting with LegalCORPS of Minnesota about the process involved in becoming an independent chapter. There are pluses and minuses both ways, and the time has come to make a decision. This process has been going on since 2014 and it is time to make a final decision. Arc Northland is still wavering as well.
The Membership Coordinator and President are volunteer positions. If you would like to step forward or if you know someone who would accept one of these roles, please let us know.
