Dear RAM Members,

It is with great disappointment that the RAM Executive Board has made the decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Training Conference, but this was necessary for practical reasons due to the COVID-19 virus.

We are proceeding with our Annual Membership Meeting and Elections. The Board is working out details to try to conduct the meeting virtually on the same original date: the morning of Friday, May 22, 2020. As soon as arrangements are made, we will provide details on our website and through an email distributed by the listserv.

The following positions will be on the ballot: Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and 7 members at large. Under the terms of our By-Laws, our current Vice President becomes President and our current President may choose to remain on the Board as the immediate past President in lieu of filling the 8th member at large position. The Vice President serves a two year term and then become President for a two year term. The remaining officers and board members serve a two year term. Anyone interested in running for a position on the RAM Executive Board must submit a nomination to our Secretary Janet Mendez at jmendez@ingham.org AND Vice President Lorie Savin at savinl@oakgov.com by US mail, fax, or email by May 1, 2020.

We hope to see you (virtually) in May and can't wait to spend time with you in Bay Harbor in 2021. Be safe and stay well.

Kristi
