On November 20 the Board of Trustees voted to place at-large board member Linda Schlegel into the vacant vice president position. The board then voted to have Mike Bell fill the at-large board member position created by Linda accepting the VP slot. It is important to note that these are interim appointments, effective until the next election of officers in June 2024. Many thanks to Linda and Mike for stepping up to fill these positions through the current program year. In an effort to more fully develop our ability to enhance financial support, the board has also taken steps to incorporate and establish the JLC CWRT as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. It is anticipated that there will be a brief discussion of the round table’s current financial situation immediately before the Third Annual Civil War Challenge gets started on January 11, 2024. We look forward to sharing this vital information with our members.
