Conclave 2013 - NEWS
During the weekend Lowaneu Allanque hosted the Section C-7 Conclave. It became a very eventful gathering for Marshal Savitski who received the R D Dunkin Award for Service to the Section. However, Sunday Morning he received a second honor by being voted the New C7 Section Chief for the 2013-14 year. Congratulations to Marshal for receiving both great honors.
With the honor of Section Chief, Marshal will need to step down as Lodge Chief. As protocol dictates, Nathaniel Baum (Vice Chief of Committees) will assume the role of Lodge Chief for the remainder of the current term. We will then need to elect a new Vice Chief of Committees at the May E-Board meeting on Thursday May 16th. We encourage all prospective candidates for the position to contact Mr. Johnson by May 5th of your intent to run. Just as important we need as many youth members as possible to attend this meeting, to vote for the person you believe will best serve the lodge during these next several months. Again Congratulations to Marshal!
