The SJRTA Annual Members Meeting will be held on Sunday, March 15, at 2 p.m. at the North Columbia Schoolhouse Cultural Center. All members should attend if possible! At the meeting, you may join or renew your membership for 2015 ($5 per person), vote for the four seats up for election on the Board of Directors, and get all the news about what’s happening with the mine application and what SJRTA has been up to. We’ll show a short version of Tom and Debby Weistar’s movie, “Water for Gold,” discuss alternative land uses for the Diggings, the well monitoring program, stream monitoring, volunteer opportunities, and more. Please attend!
All voting members in good standing (dues paid up) are eligible to vote for the four directors’ seats. Voting memberships are open to a) persons who own land on the San Juan Ridge and b) persons who reside on the San Juan Ridge. We welcome others to attend and/or join in the Friends of SJRTA membership category. Anyone can become a (non-voting) Friend of SJRTA.
The four positions that are up for election are those of current Board members Kurt Lorenz, Alexa Wondergem, Lars Ortegren and Gary Parsons. (The other three board seats will be up for election in 2016.) Kurt, Alexa and Lars intend to run for another term, but Gary will not. Any voting member may run for the board. If you wish to do so, please submit a letter of intent to SJRTA by February 28, so that you can appear on the ballot. Include a brief statement of your experience/what you feel you would bring to the board. You will also be asked to make a statement at the membership meeting. A letter of intent may be sent by email to email@example.com, or mailed to SJRTA, P.O. Box 421, North San Juan, CA 95960.
