LC Sept Meeting Notes – Next Meeting Sun 13OCT2019

We had our first open meeting since LC32 this past Saturday on 14SEP2019 and are gearing up for LC33.

The LC Board of Directors were up for two positions. Donald Puckett and Matthew Fanny have both stepped up and have been voted in to keep their positions as Vice Chair and Registration Director, respectively, for the next three years.

The OCTOBER MEETING will be:Sunday, October 13, 2019.

THIS MEETING will be the vote for the LC34 Guest of Honors.Typically, the board opens the vote to all who are present at the meeting. If there is an LC Meeting to make in person, this one is it.

As LC Family, meaning all you who attend and follow this page, we take nominations for GoHs. Who would you like to see for the following slots for LibertyCon 34:

Literary Guest of Honor

Artist Guest of Honor

Science Guest of Honor

Special Guest of Honor

Master of Ceremonies

And one more vote will be taken as well, for the LibertyCon 33 Charity of Choice.

NOTE: Special GoH is not a Fan Guest of Honor. This is a Special position given to to a person who has gone above and beyond in many ways for LibertyCon.

Nominations for all of the above can be posted as a comment below or sent to Fritz at Secretary@LibertyCon.org. He will be collecting all nominations and prepare the list for the vote in October’s meeting.H
