    BSNM Annual Elections.  Nominations for Board positions are welcome. Some current officers are willing to serve on the board due to COVID-19, and were nominated at the Sept. Zoom General Meeting. However, all positions on the board are open for members who want to run and they must be nominated for the vote at the meeting. Voting will take place as standard procedures during our election meetings w/ "Raising of the Hands" the same as in  past years.
