term is set to expire in December. Additionally, the nominating committee shall, by
September 1, contact any board member who, by virtue of the term, would automatically
continue as a board member for additional terms. These board members shall be asked if
they are able and willing to fulfill their term in office. If they choose not to fulfill their
term, this will add to the number of vacancies available on the board of directors.

consideration.
