In accordance with the FFCC Policy and Procedure Manual, the 2018 Nominating Committee met recently to review all applications for open positions on the FFCC Board of Directors. This was voted in by the membership to better inform the members before the meeting. This will also speed up the election process as no nominations will be received from the floor. Each nominee was required to answer prepared questions, provide a letter of recommendation, and submit a resume. Those items were all turned over to the Nominating Committee for review the follow is the result of that process.
The following are proposals for changes in policy and procedures for the 2019 competitive season. This will give attendees time to read and prepare for the annual meeting on June 3, 2018 in Orlando Florida. The FFCC Annual Meeting is an open meeting, however only registered team delegates may vote. To review current policy, you can follow this link – FFCC Policy and Procedures.
