Board Nominations

Two positions on the RUSA Board of Directors will become available at the end of the year. Members may nominate two current RUSA members to run for those two positions. A nomination form is included in the Summer 2012 issue of the American Randonneur. (Please note that the form mis-identifies the current board members whose terms are expiring). A corrected nomination form is available. To submit your nominations, please mail the form to:
 Mark Thomas Randonneurs USA 13543 160th Ave NE Redmond, WA 98052 
The nominations deadline is September 15. Nominations must be received by that date.
