Historical society seeks candidates for board of directors

The Absecon Historical Society Nominating Committee is accepting the names of residents who wish to be considered for membership on the Board of Directors for the 2014-16 term.

Four positions are up for election. If interested, call Bobbie Gorman, committe chair, at 609-646-5601.

The Nominating Committee will review all applications and announce a slate at the Oct. 7 dinner meeting at Gourmet Italian. The election to fill the positions will take place at 7 p.m. Nov. 4 at Howlett Hall. Residents not recommended by the committee can still run for office by submitting a petition signed by 10 members of the Absecon Historical Society at least 15 days before the Nov. 4 election.

Petitions are to be mailed and postmarked by the deadline to AHS, P.O. Box 1422, Absecon, NJ 08201.

To be eligible as a member of the Board of Directors, a resident must be an active member in good standing, which usually means having assisted as a volunteer in society-sponsored events, and is a paid member of the Absecon Historical Society for a minimum of two years. For questions, call Gorman at 609-646-5601.
