MacBUS Elections
to be held in March

MacBUS elections will be held in March. The MacBUS board is soliciting names of members who are interested in assuming a role in the continued success of MacBUS. If you know a MacBUS member who would like to participate, even on a very limited basis, encourage them to e-mail their name and interest to Board at MacBUS dot org. MacBUS is always in need of members who can fulfill the roles of program coordinators, board members, public relations, publicity representatives as well as member who can assist in meeting arrangements and helping with mailings.

If you can devote only a few hours a month to help our group, MacBUS would welcome an opportunity to talk to you and match your interests to the needs of the group. While the Board has grand plans for further developing the group into a resource for members on many different levels, it takes the efforts of many group members to ensure the success of those plans. Please consider helping MacBUS today and contact the board!!
