    • Note that Josh, Jon and Lynette have reached the term limit for their offices. We will require new people as Vice President, Secretary and Librarian
      • Personal Note: I've held most of these jobs before, and they can be kind of fun. The big "plus side" is that you get in on the planning for everything that goes on in the club. A few of the jobs have more actual work involved but also have additional perks. The Vice President manages all the seminars at the monthly meetings. It's a bit of work, but you get to set the calendar. The Librarian's job is really sweet -- you get to shop for books and you aren't even spending your own money. The Secretary's job is really simple. Just keep a few notes and post them on the forum. Mostly, it's just being there.
