On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to invite all members to attend the Fall Members’ Meeting on Friday October 25, 2019 at 5:30 PM.

The principal item on the agenda is the election of four new members to the Board.  The preferred method of voting is through ‘Survey Monkey’ and a link to the voting page will be provided to Stockholding Members in a few days. ***UPDATE: THIS EMAIL HAS BEEN SENT OUT*** When you receive it, please open the page and record your vote electronically. ‘Survey Monkey’ voting will close at 4:00 PM Friday, October 25, 2019.

For those who wish to vote manually, a printable paper ballot form has been emailed to you. Please print the ballot form, fill it out, and submit it to the office at the Club.  Paper ballot voting will close at 5:30 PM on Friday, October 25, 2019.

You will see in both ‘Survey Monkey’ and the paper ballot form that there is a space for write-in candidates.  Only vote for a total of four candidates including write-ins.

Though all Members are welcome to attend, please keep in mind that only Stockholding Members may vote.  One vote per Stockholding Membership. 

Stockholding Members will receive a link to vote on Survey Monkey in a few days.

The Board of Directors has considered numerous potential candidates for the four new Board positions and, based on a thorough vetting process, recommends the following slate of candidates who the Board feels would provide significant contributions and leadership to the Board and to BYSC:

  • Judith Alling
  • Randy Atkins
  • Lauren Carroway
  • Sean Quigley 

Brief bios of each of the Board recommended candidates have been emailed to members. If you did not receive the email, or you do not receive the link to vote via SurveyMonkey, please contact the office.

In addition to the election of new Board members, the agenda for the meeting will include summary reports from various Board Committee Chairpersons briefly summarizing 2019 activities as well as the annual report of the General Manager.

Please note that Minutes of the monthly Board Meetings, as well as the Financial Statements through September 30, 2019 are available for your review in the Member’s Area of the BYSC website.  The website address is www.byscnet.com and the password to the Member’s Area is available to members from the office.  Printed copies of the Financial Statements will NOT be available at the meeting.  If you would like a hardcopy of the documents for reference at the meeting, please print a copy from the website.

Keep in mind that the meeting cleverly falls on the ‘final’ Friday of the month. The bar will of course be open, and the ‘Club’ will be grilling bratwursts for the after-meeting festivities. Please bring a ‘German’ theme dish to share.

We hope to see all of you on the 25th.


For the Board of Directors,
Chuck Rushing
