Friends of Cougar



By Greg Thorne - Friday 4/1/05

Until now the Friends of Cougar has had no officers, just members. Our membership totals over 1400 individuals.

In order to incorporate as a non-profit, sign a contract with the Forest Service and manage the Hot Springs we will need officers.

First election - 4/5/05:

We are going to first elect a Secretary. The Secretary will then oversee the election of the other members of the board of directors.

Only votes placed between midnight and 11:59pm PDT on April 5th will be counted. You are welcome to test the voting page today and submit any comments.

There will thus be a total of 5 members on the board of directors which will each have one vote on matters of the Friends of Cougar which will be incorporated as a non-profit.

The board will choose officers. The term for elected members of the board of directors is one year.
