2017 ACDGC Board Member Candidates

Each year at the ACDGC Annual Meeting members who choose to volunteer to serve as Officers on the Air Capital Disc Golf Club Board stand for election by the club membership. The seven board positions are President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, Events Coordinator, Parks Liaison, and Communications Director. This years meeting will be on January 14th at the WATER Center in Herman Hill Park, at 1:30 p.m.

The candidates for 2017 are:

President – Jerry Sherwood

Vice President – Marty Hunt

Treasurer – Joe Belsan

Secretary – Nathan Taylor

Parks Liaison – Jehramy Heckman

Communications Director – Brian Thompson

Per the ACDGC By-Laws, members in good standing for a minimum of 3 months prior to the election are eligible to vote and for the election to be valid at least 20% of the active membership as of December 31, 2016 must cast a ballot. That means we must have at least 32 members in good standing casting a vote in this year’s election.

If a member cannot make it to the meeting a completed absentee ballot can be emailed to president@aircapitaldiscgolfclub.org, given to a current board member, or otherwise delivered to the ACDGC Secretary at the Annual meeting. You can download an absentee ballot at https://www.dropbox.com/s/98r88tljedi1t4t/Absentee%20Ballot%202017.pdf?dl=0 Members can also pick up and fill out an absentee ballot at Ducks Flying Discs, 813, W 11th Street. Event’s Coordinator Ben Nispel will take charge of completed ballots left at Ducks.

For information on the candidates you can look over the candidate bio sheets they submitted. You’ll find all of them in this dropbox folder

If the volunteers are approved by the membership to serve as ACDGC Officers for the next year, they are charged to fulfill various  leadership, administrative and organizational tasks and roles related to ACDGC sponsored and/or hosted events,  the maintenance, improvement and expansion of disc golf facilities in the Greater Wichita Metropolitan Area, and promoting the sport of disc golf in an effort to continue growing the sport. At times they will need additional help. Please answer the call whenever and however you’re able to contribute.

Thank you for your  support of the ACDGC. I hope to see you on January 14 at the Annual Meeting.

Jerry Sherwood
