New Omni Officers
MaryAnne brought up the fact that the Delegates Assembly needs to elect a President, Treasurer and Secretary. We need to go back to our collectives and see who will be willing, then we need to come together and vote. Those now holding office need a break and also need to be re-elected...We need to deal with that.
