Maggie and I went up and there were many District Reps and Coordinators there.
In August a new ”panel” was voted in. A “panel” is the executive board consisting of MI Delegate, Alt. Delegate, Secretary, Treasurer and Chairman. The old one was Panel 55 and the new is Panel 58. They go in 3 year increments and the new one takes office Jan. 2018.
Along with this Board there are many Coordinator positions to fill as these get replaced also. The Coordinator positions are Alateen Coord. And Area Alateen Process Person (AAPP), records coord, archives coord, public outreach coord, website coord, Lit/ Forum coord, newsletter editor and tech coord. If you are interested in any of these positions let me know and I will pass this on to Ann M. MI Del. You do not need to be a GR past or present.
Remember MIAFG has grown from members participation.
