I have been very quiet and very busy during the past month. As I was catching up on my Saints e-mail, and planning a coordinator meeting, I realized that I hadn't looked at my blog for close to a month.

It is very exciting to see that there is an election commission, and that candidates are voicing their ideas and opinions in response to serious questions. The quality of some of the questions is outstanding, and very thought provoking. The responses from the candidates have been candid, and people have not always taken the easy route when responding. It's so wonderful.

On Monday, April 26, there will be a membership meeting where candidates will be nominated, find out their ballot positions, and publicly answer questions from the membership. What a change from last year's elections. It's so refreshing.

Right now, we have nine candidates for six board positions.

What is most refreshing is how many people are helping and how people have stepped up to work hard to make the Saints an even better organization. We have smoothly made a transition during what is the busiest time of year for the Saints. Election time, renewals, new members coming to orientations, making the mailed Spotlight available on a subscription basis, new venues, new coordinators, board meetings, membership meetings, appreciation events, determining grant recipients, drafting a "privacy policy" and rewriting bylaws. Wow. Lots of hard work and lots of volunteers.

We are a vibrant organization. After a very challenging year, we are coming through and have definitely grown in numbers and sophistication.

Let's make sure that we have a good turnout Monday at the membership meeting. There will be an opportunity to ask questions of the candidates, sign up for ushering, and socialize.

Vittum Theatre, 1012 N Noble on April 26 at 7 pm

Do not park in the parking lot in back of the building but park on the street or use public transportation.

I hope to see many of you there.
