Dear SCGC Members,
The following contains information regarding the annual Circuit Meeting, the submission of 2008 proposals, and absentee/ proxy voting procedures. Also included is information to submit nominations for open Board of Director seats, which will be voted on at the June Circuit Meeting.
The 2008 Circuit Meeting will be held at Brooks High School on Saturday, June 7 at 2:00PM. If your Guard/Percussion program paid SCGC membership dues for the 2008 season, you are a voting member of the SCGC...one vote per unit. The Circuit Meeting serves as a place for you to voice your concerns on how to improve the experience of everyone involved in the circuit. In an effort to continue to move forward and foster growth within the circuit, we need feedback on how to make this great circuit even better for directors, show sponsors, spectators, and most importantly the students involved.
Opinions of our membership are heard in the form of proposals submitted via email BEFORE the Circuit meeting. Although an unlimited number of proposals can be submitted, members are encouraged to take much time and thought in the wording of their proposals. Please remember your proposals will be published for membership to read and discuss. The Proposal form can be found in the resources section of the website. Proposals must be submitted to HopeJRAH@bellsouth.net on or before Tuesday, May 20.
