Please take a minute to read this email completely. The first section is a recap of our Tech Session this last weekend and the second is regarding our need for a
Zone 6 Representative. There will be another announcement about the Christmas Party with some more details and registration information coming tomorrow. Thanks for understanding the need to send a few emails as we wind down our year.
Tech Session Success
Thanks to Bob and Diane Westmoreland, this past Saturday's Tech Party at their home was simply Stunning! A party of this magnitude does not happen without work behind the scenes, so here are some much deserved 'thank-you's.'
Thank you, Bob and Diane, for your incredible hospitality and the many arrangements you made. As in the past, we felt at home. Call it a home coming party, which it was in many respects. We couldn't have asked for more. There was plenty to eat and to drink. The weather cooperated with us, although we wouldn't have objected to a bit warmer temperatures. It was Bob who kept the fires burning to keep those who mingled outside warm for the afternoon and early evening.
A big thank you also to Cal and Myra, Chef and Sous-Chef de cuisine for most of the afternoon. Never had a better 'hamburger'!
Thank you, Tom Smith, for getting us tables and chairs for this event. Without you, we would have had standing room only.
Talking about tables and chairs, it was Brian Westmoreland, plus Bob and Diane, who helped to get these items back to the rental company on Monday morning. Brian, my personal thanks.
Diane, thanks for all of your preparations and planning. It was absolutely complete with the incredible Porsche flag flying above the event.
And 'thanks' go to all of you who brought more food than we were able to consume. The desserts were just delicious. It was difficult at times to leave the table-long exhibition of so tasty and mouth-watering cookies and cakes.
Zone 6 Representative
As Dave Cooley's second term as Zone 6 (the INWR is part of Zone 6) Representative will be completed on December 31st, 2013, the Executive Council of the PCA is soliciting recommendations for a Zone 6 Representative who will serve a two-year term, beginning January 1st, 2014. The Zone Representative serves as a liaison between PCA National and the regions of the Zone. The Zone Representative is responsible for assisting the regions (in our case there are 15 regions as of today) in any way they can, and should help to insure the general welfare of each region within the Zone. The Zone Representative should endeavor to meet with the Region Presidents at least once per year and visit each region at least once per year. The Zone Rep. should solicit a written Region Proxy for all Board of Director meetings in the the event that a Region President or region member will not be attending. The Zone Representative should understand the opinion of each region on important matters known prior to the Board meeting so the voting position of the region can be reported. The Zone Representative may be called upon by Council Members or committee chairs to assist in various special situations. The Zone Representative job, one of the best in PCA many say, requires significant commitment to PCA and an applicant should have extensive regional management experience, and the ability to travel (expenses reimbursed).
The Executive Council requests that each Region provide a recommendation for their Zone Representative candidate.
If you are interested in this position, please, let me know immediately. If you have questions, please, do call or email me.
Would appreciate very much to hear from you.
