members can talk with the individual candidates. The election will be at

Modernization continues to focus on the plan outlined in the November
Bulletin. After obtaining accurate costs, a letter and ballot will be
mailed to the membership in early December asking for approval,
rejection or modification of the plan and approval of a financial
direction. The board will act accordingly.
