Dear Fellow FAA Member,
As a Voting Member I need to brief you on business actions your FAA Board of Directors has taken in response to the pandemic. As you know our Annual Conference, scheduled for June 14-17 in St. Petersburg was cancelled. This necessity led to some provisions of the FAA's bylaws impossible to implement. Specifically, assembling a Nominating Committee to develop a slate, conducting an Annual Meeting and the election of officers and directors.
In my role as the Immediate Past Chairman of the Board, our bylaws stipulate that I also serve as Chairman of the Nominating Committee.
Under our current circumstances making "business as usual" impossible, the Board passed a resolution
suspending the provisions outlined above for one year. We will "freeze" our 2019-20 Officers and Directors
for one year until we meet again for our 2021 Annual Conference and hold our Annual Meeting.
This action was not taken for any reason other than to protect the collective interests of the Association through a continuity of leadership as we work together to rebuild our industry. I appreciate the Board's willingness to continue to provide their service to our Association as they, too, are engaged in rebuilding their own businesses.
I'm happy to address this action in more detail and invite you to contact me if you have any questions or need further clarification.
Wishing you, your family, colleagues, and staff a safe and healthy summer season,
Director, Museum Services Division
St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum
Immediate Past Chairman
