Every year seven PBT Board of Directors positions come up for election at the PBT Annual Membership meeting. Each October seven PBT Board of Director seats are elected by the membership to serve a two year term of office and to give their best for PBT business activities. If you are an interested candidate for one of these seven PBT Board of Director seats this is your opportunity and your notice to make your desires known.
All candidates who submit an "Intent to Run" notice by the deadline will have an opportunity to send a write up explaining who they are and why you should vote for them that will be emailed to all members of PBT.
Nominations for all positions can also be made from the floor at the October 9th meeting.
