Section Leaders

This was one of the most difficult years to select Section Leaders…..mainly because there were so many fine candidates that applied!  That is why there has been a delay in posting things!

NOTE:  Section Leaders are appointed to GUIDE and ASSIST there sections.  It is a privilege to serve in this capacity and if at any time a Section Leader does not handle themselves in a professional manner, mistreats section members or does not personally meet the same performance standards that they ask of their section, they will be removed from their position.
