The Texas Council is now in the process of electing the NEW Board of Directors. The process has been a work in progress for some time. Volunteers were asked for, and many expressed thier desire to serve. After placing the volunteers into key temporary positions, communication was sent out to see if any Texas Council members would want to run against any of the possible temporary BOD's, and from this process, the ballot for the NEW Texas Council is presented. Please either vote for the ballot or against the ballot. If the ballot does not pass by a majority, the election will be had again, and Texas Council members will be able to vote for or against each individual on the ballot. The votes will be collected and the NEW BOD's will be announced soon. If you wish to comment or have concerns, please contact Ralph Simmans at, or Rhonda Sellers at
Please reply to this email with your approval or dispapproval of the entire ballot.
Ballots will be received until 6/30/2013
A formal announcement will be sent out in early July
