Nominating Committee
As the New Year begins, it is time to begin thinking about the new leadership of our organization. The first step is to appoint a         nominating committee to accept and solicit applications for our groups 9 executive officer positions.  The past president (Rachel Davis Lipsey) and 2 other CAKD members, who are not running for an executive officer position, are needed for this committee. If you would be willing to serve on this very important committee, please contact Rachel at by January 20, 2011.

Leadership Opportunities for 2011-2012
Officer elections for CAKD occur in March each year at our annual business meeting. This past month, a poll was taken of our current officers; and only 3 of the 9 executive officer members are planning on returning to their position next year; including the office of President. Because of this, we would like the CAKD membership to begin thinking about the various officer positions that are available and begin to think if you could apply and take on the position. Positions marked with an asterisk are positions where the current officer is not planning on returning in 2011-2012.
