We Need You
You can’t expect the Board to do well without YOU
This is YOUR organization
New Members, don’t think that because you haven’t been in the organization long that you can’t run for the Board, you can!! We encourage you to get involved. You are likely to meet more Prime Timers and get to know them sooner and better by joining the Board. We can use your energy and ideas!
It’s that time of year again. Elections for the Prime Timers Board are April 15th and you can see from our By-Laws below that Nominations need to be in our office by our March Meeting, March 18th. You can email them to the Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or to me personally at email@example.com or mail them in to us at our Office, at the 566 Columbus Ave, Boston, MA 02118 address.
As explained below in the by-laws, you can see we need a short biography for you as well prior to March 20th for the Prologue.
