Board Member Elections Today

This is a reminder that Hacksburg will be having elections tonight, May 26th, at 8 PM to replace Ben Weinstein-Raun on the Board of Directors.

Currently, the following candidates have been nominated:

  • Nicole Schwartz
  • Karl Bitikofer (tentative)

Nominations may be made by emailing Andrew Mike (andrew at hacksburg dot org). You may nominate yourself, if you wish. Nominees to the Board must meet the following requirements:

  • They must be full members of Hacksburg in good standing (or be prepared to acheive full membership).
  • They must positively confirm that they want to be a nominee (no drafting people!).

In contrast to Board positions in most businesses, the Board of Directors of Hacksburg takes a significantly more hands-on approach to Hacksburg’s operations. We on the board put in an average of 5-10 hours per week on Hacksburg-related business. This includes posts to Hacksburg’s social media outlets, maintenance of Hacksburg’s online presence, discussion and planning of events, helping out at events, and fulfilling various administrative tasks. It’s a demanding job, but a rewarding one as well. We hope you’ll join us.

Meetings This Week

Hello everyone! Tomorrow, we’ll be having a board meeting at 7 and a general meeting at 7:30, as usual. The full agenda is here.

Board member nominations continue this week, and will continue until May 26th. In addition, we’ll be continuing work on the Solstice Fest booth. Come out and join us!

Solstice Fest

As you may have heard, Hacksburg got approved to display at Solstice Fest on June 20th. We’re glad to participate in this, and we have an awesome booth in the making! In order to make that happen, though, we need volunteers to help set up and tear down the booth, hand out flyers, make sure people don’t hurt themselves on our exhibit, et cetera.

In order to coordinate schedules, we’ve created a Doodle for volunteers to indicate what hours they’re available to work here. If you can help at all, please do. Even an hour of your time would be greatly beneficial.

Thanks for your support, and we hope to see you there!
