CALSAGA is pleased to announce that the nominations period is now open for members who are interested in serving on the 2021-2022 CALSAGA Board of Directors. Elected Board Members will serve a 2-calendar year term on the Board of Directors, commencing January 1, 2021. The deadline for nomination submissions is the close of business, Friday, September 18, 2020.
The 11 Directors on the Board are responsible for the governing, operations, planning, and general business matters of CALSAGA. We are a non-profit corporation and are governed by our bylaws, articles of incorporation, and state law. The Board meets every other month and Directors must make a commitment to attend these meetings.
