Just wondering how the convention went? Hope all had a great time.
Will we get an update on the results of the voting here or only in the next magazine?

Hi Irene
Although I was not at the convention, here's what I was told by attendees:
Two resignations were accepted, and their positions were filled by a Board vote. The nominations that were not made in accordance with Bylaws were dismissed. New executive committee for 2011 is:
President - Brian Flowers
VicePres - Steve Whitaker
Secretary - Skip Norman
Recording Secretary - Gwen Hibler (elected as alternate)
Acting Treasurer - Craig Hopkins

Attendance was down a little this year but everyone had a good time and enjoyed the activities. Looking forward to attracting new members, sharing what we know and having fun while we do it. For those of you on the forum who are not members, we hope you'll join and participate. Peafowl Today would love to hear your stories about how you got involved in peafowl and some of the experiences you've had. We can all learn from each other and have a few laughs along the way. Let's promote these beautiful birds that bring us so much joy!

I would like to say " Thank you " to everyone for allowing me to serve as President.
never in a lifetime did I expect the votes to turn out like they did. I had a great time and am still looking forward to the next convention. we should all move forward and continue to help each other and make the United Peafowl Association all it can and should be.
I would also like to give a huge " Thank You " to Steve and Tracey Whitaker for all there hard work in hosting this convention.

Congratulations to all who were voted in!
Thanks also for those of you who were nominated and offered to give of your free time to the club. Without people like you there would be no club
