Happy Easter!


During the month of May, ALCM will hold elections for regional officers (president, vice-president, and member at large), for one member at large, and for president-elect. The regional officers are elected for a two year term and are eligible to run for a second term. The member at large serves a two year term and is eligible to run for a second term. The president-elect serves for six years: two as president-elect, three as president, and one as past-president. We have two very able candidates for president-elect, Julie Grindle and Zeb Highben. They have each prepared an introductory video in addition to providing a bio and a vision statement. We thank each of them in advance for their willingness to serve.


Blessings to each of you as we continue our joyful Alleluias!
