Good Morning,

It is with a heavy heart that I formally announce the resignations of Kaelee Pines as Vice Chairman and Peter Ildefonso as Treasurer of the Arlington Falls Church Young Republicans.

Both members have been integral to our organization's success; however, personal and professional obligations have called them away from service in any official capacity with the AFCYRs.

That being said, we now have two (2) vacancies on the Executive Board which must be filled per the AFCYR bylaws, which may be read here. The terms of both of these positions end in February 2016, whereupon a new Executive Board will be elected.

In order to run for either the Vice Chairman or Treasurer position, you must have been a full member for at least ninety (90) days. Additionally, you must formally announce your candidacy to Elections Chairman Jeffrey Wernsing in writing (preferably, by email) by the start of our next meeting.

You may email Jeff here.

Under the bylaws, the responsibilities of Vice Chairman are:

1. Serve as temporary Chairman if the Chairman is absent or unable to serve.
2. Be responsible for all reasonable tasks assigned by the Chairman.
3. Serve as an ex-officio member of all Club committees and receive copies of all Club committee communications. 
4. If unable to attend to a task, shall contact the Chairman without delay.

Under the bylaws, the responsibilities of Treasurer are: 

1. Keep accurate and updated financial records of the club, to be reported at each Executive Board meeting and at the request of the Chairman.
2. Be responsible for collecting dues and other monies owed to the club and writing receipts for those monies.
3. Place a copy of financial record summaries in a central file and maintain such file, which will be available for review by all Active members.
4. Be responsible for all reasonable tasks assigned by the Chairman.
5. If unable to attend to a task, shall contact the Chairman without delay.

If you have questions about the month-to-month responsibilities of these two positions, please reach out to me by replying to this email. I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

The period of nomination will close at our September 21 meeting, and the election will take place at our October 19 meeting. Only full members will be able to cast a ballot in these elections. 

If you aren't sure about your current membership status, simply reply to this email.

I hope you'll join us at our September 21 meeting. Details are forthcoming, and you may RSVP on Facebook here.

We will be collecting items for Doorways for Women and Families, a community-based organization that "creates pathways out of domestic violence and homelessness leading to safe and stable lives." Their current wish list includes pull-ups (2T-5T), paper towels, toilet paper, and grocery store gift cards.

Please check out their full list of desired items here.

In addition to our organization's political work, the AFCYRs are committed to engaging our community and working to improve the quality of life for those who are most vulnerable. We are proud to work with Doorways, which provides an incredibly valuable service to victims of domestic violence.

Lastly, I want to personally thank you for your involvement in the Arlington Falls Church Young Republicans. We are building a strong foundation for 2016 and working around the clock to deliver Virginia to the Republican nominee for president.

Thank you.

For Liberty,

Matthew Hurtt, Chairman
Arlington Falls Church YRs

P.S.     The positions of Vice Chairman and Treasurer have both been vacated, and we must elect new members of the Executive Board at our October meeting. If you're interested in running for either position, please email Elections Chairman Jeffrey Wernsing here.
