Serve on our Board



In accordance with the By-Laws of the Green Valley Democrats, a selection process must be conducted each year to create a slate of nominations to fill positions on the Executive Board for the next two years. The nominations are then presented to the general membership at the annual meeting in December. A Nominations Committee has been formed to begin seeking out and interviewing possible nominees for the 2025-2026 term of service.


To preserve continuity, Board positions are staggered as required in the By-Laws. The positions for which the Committee is seeking candidates are for the 2025-2026 term of service:


President

  

Vice Presidents for:

• Membership

• Programs

• Treasurer

• Secretary

• Member at Large


Any member in good standing, interested in serving on the Board for the next full term, should convey their interest to any of the following Committee members:


Bryan Lane - sailursaminor@gmail.com

Becky McCreary - rebeccamccreary764@gmail.com

Judy Holley - jalholley@cox.net

Mark Eckstein - az9261954@gmail.com


The candidate will be contacted by the Committee to answer questions about the position, discuss the candidate’s qualifications and interests, and set a date for an interview with all the Committee members to formalize the nomination. We hope to conclude the nomination process by the end of October 2024 at the latest.


Your interest in serving on the Board is both important and appreciated.

WE CARE Campaign in July:

Sahuarita Food Bank and Resource Center


For July we will be collecting for the Sahuarita Food Bank. 


Their current needs include:

  • Cereal and oatmeal
  • Peanut butter and other nut butters for those with peanut allergies
  • Canned meats, including tuna fish and chicken
  • Macaroni and cheese/ramen/pasta
  • Canned soup, particularly hearty soups such as Progresso
  • Beans
  • Rice
  • Canned vegetables
  • Canned tomato products
  • Instant potato and rice

They have some visitors who are living out of their cars or on the streets who appreciate food in smaller proportions that don’t require preparation.


Bring your contributions to Headquarters or to any program meeting.


Thank you!

Headquarters will be closed July 4th and 5th. Otherwise, Headquarters is open 5 days per week, Monday through Friday, from 9 am to 3 pm. These hours will continue until the election in November. With this very important election coming up we want to be more available to the voting public.
