Planning for Annual Celebration: Nominations, Budget

In advance of the October 26 District UMW Annual Celebration, we must post some information on our website for your review.

As shown below, the Nominations Slate and Administration & Membership Development Budget will be voted on during the meeting; you will have an opportunity to ask questions before the vote is taken.

  1. Nominations Slate
    We have 3 open positions: Secretary, and two Members of Nominations Committee.
    One position has a nominee.  If you are interested in being part of the District UMW team for the other positions, please contact us.
