The success of any volunteer organization, depends upon its officers and members. We are grateful for the dedication of the members who took up the tasks of serving as an HAL5 officer. Per our bylaws, the officers are elected, in June of each year, by the membership for a position of 1 year. In 2014(??), to align with HAL5 fiscal year, and our reporting requirements to our parent organization (NSS), the HAL5 executive officers voted to amend the bylaw by moving the annual election to January of each year or at the Christmas party in December of the preceding year if there is a guest speaker in January.
