AMPS Officer Elections
January 12, 2020
The election cycle for some AMPS officers is fast
approaching. Our Officers are elected to
two-year terms on a staggered basis which run through the end of the annual
International Convention. In 2020 our 1VP, 2VP Canada, 2VP Northwest, 2VP South
and Secretary positions are up for election.
Nominations (including self-nominations) will be accepted
through the AMPS Officer Elections 2020 board on the AMPS website discussion
page from 15 January 2020 to 29 February 2020.
On 1 March 2020, a list of eligible nominees will be posted
on the club website. Voting is through the website and members may cast votes
from 1-15 March 2020. The winner for each position will be determined by a
simple majority of votes cast. On 16 March
2020, the Club’s Webmaster will verify the vote totals and announce the
winners. The results will be tabulated and published on the club Website.
For several years AMPS has combined the duties of the 2VP
Northwest and 2VP West with the 2VP West.
We did this because we’ve not had anyone from the Pacific Northwest step
forward to run for election. Currently,
we have 19 active AMPS members in the Pacific Northwest and would like to grow
that number, but we’ll need someone to step forward as the Region 2VP to help
increase the visibility of AMPS in the area.
If you are interested in helping AMPS, please contact either John
Charvat or Mike Petty.

The recent problems with the website were due to an intermittent hardware issue on the server that runs our site. Our ISP has made repairs, and we expect things to be stable for the rest of this week. The site will be migrated to new hardware over the weekend, which should improve reliability further.
We are in the process of drafting plans to implement a fail over site in case the main site goes down again. Hopefully this will be in place before the end of the year.
We apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate your patience while we improve the AMPS website.
Thanks for all of the help at the Show in Buffalo!

The result of the 2019 AMPS show can be viewed by clicking here.
Now enjoy yourselves this summer with any local and regional shows you may be attending, but do try to stay at least a bit active at your work benches, as the fall and winter shows will be upon us before you know it!
The 2020 Harrisburg, Pennsylvania show with it’s theme of Last Battles will be here quicker than we think, so get those award winners out of their kit boxes and onto your benches!
Enjoy your summer!
