Welcome to the new SLSA website :)

The SLSA board has moved the SLSA web site to a new host and hosting will be automatically paid via SLSA funds. (hosting is $6.95 (1850L) per month).
The Site has been revamped in terms of look and feel and up dated with all the latest versions of the content management software (wordpress for the main site and phpBB for the forum).
We still have some work to do to refresh the existing content, and by all means would welcome suggestions from the members.
The forum has a lot of new features and should help to make it more interactive and fun!

Watch this space for updates and new stories!! 🙂

SLSA Special Elections

***An SLSA Election has been called for****

This election is being called for the following reasons
1) there are not enough standing directors left to from a quorum in order to be able to appoint interim directors.
2) the next scheduled election is June 1st which is after the Neart Competition which would force the 2 remaining directors to run the competition three directors short.
The elected directors will be elected for a full 6 month term in addition to the 2 weeks before June 1.

The question is-
Do you support having an election to fill the three open directors chairs vacated by Ritch Goalpost, Sierra Sugar and Carenahh Kuhh?

Please vote yes , I support the election or no, I do not support the election.
Submit your note card with vote to Radical Twang, Milo Voss, Poid Mahovlich, Rani Decosta and Carenahh Kuhh
You may use the same note card as your SLSA Candidates note card if you do choose to vote.
—————————————————
We have had three people express their interest to be on the SLSA board of directors. They are Sally LaSalle, Ashleigh Dickins and Colleen Brennan. Their announcements to run for this election will be posted on the forum. Since Sally has decided to run, Carenahh Kuu has volunteered to stand in her place receiving the votes.

Please submit a note card with your votes for SLSA director to Radical Twang, Milo Voss, Poid Mahovlich, Rani Decosta and Carenahh Kuu by Saturday May 17th. Please make sure to drop a note card on all five of us.

PLEASE VOTE. While there are three open slots and three candidates running it is very important that the membership vote on these TWO important issues.
