Annual Membership Meeting/Election:
Our annual membership meeting was held during our Halloween virtual event. The Nominating Committee was pleased to announce the newly elected Board of Directors for 2021: Adela Su, Alex Schult, Arielle Boguslav, Didi Jennings, Gaia Read, Jim Naffin, Kristin Wenger, Leigh Gordon and Peg Miller. Current Directors Bonnie Strickler, Ed Guida, Katie Bigelow and Kyla Miller will step down at the end of their term this year; thank you all for your service!

Membership Renewals:
Don't forget, in light of COVID-19, CSDS has reduced the membership fee to $5 for the time being. Take advantage of this low fee to renew your membership (or rejoin!), and support CSDS. Even if your membership doesn't expire anytime soon, another year will simply be added to the expiration date of your current membership. To renew your membership at the newly reduced fee, please visit the CSDS website. If you have any questions regarding the status of your membership, please contact Membership Coordinator Didi Jennings.

Board News:
At the most recent Board of Directors meeting on November 5th, the Board decided to continue not holding any in person events this month. The next Board of Directors meeting is scheduled for Thursday, December 3rd at 6:30 pm EST via Zoom. Please contact the Board if you have any questions/concerns. Stay safe everyone, wishing you and yours all the best this upcoming holiday season!
