Oberon special election Feb. 27, 2012


Hi Oberoners,
 
It's time for another Oberon meeting!
 
Our next meeting is on Monday, February 27 at 6:45 PM at our new place (well, we DID meet there last month so it's not COMPLETELY new), the Bloomfield Township Library at 1099 Lone Pine Road in Bloomfield Township (SE corner of Telegraph and Lone Pine).
 
We will have an exciting meeting (as usual). A lot of important things will be happening so I hope everyone can attend.
 
As we discussed at last month's meeting, we are in need of an interim Chairman until we can hold formal elections for all our positions in September. So we will be holding a Special Election at the February meeting. At the moment we have two nominations for Interim Chair, myself and Tom Townsend. We will entertain any other nominations at the February meeting (or before then if you want to let me know about it by e-mail) and then we can vote.
 
In addition, at the February meeting we will be treated to a presentation by Ron Halstead. I understand that it will be an expanded and reworked version of the talk he gave at the recent Authorship Conference in Washington, DC on James Shapiro and the Bible. You won't want to miss this.
 
We will also be discussing plans for upcoming events that Oberon can be involved in. These include the upcoming Authorship Conference at York University in Toronto on Saturday, April 7, 2012, the Stratford Festival, and local events (theater and movie).
 
Please make every effort to attend this jam-packed meeting.

Richard Joyrich
Oberon Vice-chair
 
PS: I do have to mention that annual dues of $15 are payable at the meeting, so come prepared.
