Nominates open until November 30, 2022. Voting will be from December 1 until December 15, 2022.

One of the current CORE members is leaving their post. One is staying on and the other 3 would like to stay but in a different role. Since roles will be switched, there will be nominations for these roles. If you are interested in any of the MGS positions, please either nominate yourself or have someone nominate you.

Serving as one of the Core Officers is an excellent way of giving back to the Maryland geocaching community.

Section 4. SECRETARY
The Secretary shall keep or cause to be kept the minutes of the Board in one or more books provided for that purpose, will see that all notices are duly given in accordance with the provisions of these Bylaws or as required by law, and in general perform all duties as from time to time may be prescribed by the President or the Board.

This entails trying to keep an active participation of the website by encouraging members to post articles and forum remarks in the various threads.

After 4 years as treasurer, I've decided to step down. It's been fantastic working with Cindy, Larry, and Stacy for the past 3 years, Austin in 2022, as well as the 2019 core, and I will certainly consider serving as an officer again someday. For now, though, I think it's time to let someone else try their hand at keeping the books. I'll do everything I can to ensure a smooth transition for the next treasurer. Thanks to everyone for all the support, and hope to see you at the Holiday Swap!!
