The term is for two years with no term limits and will begin on January 1, 2022.  Angie Konvicka will NOT be seeking reelection as she plans on finally enjoying retirement!  Our communications chair, Angie Peters, can assist with the minutes and correspondence portion of the Secretary/Treasurer position which would leave the financials. 

The duties of the above positions are listed below as taken from the ORWMA By-laws:

A)     Vice-President

1.       Will assume the President’s duties in the President’s absence.

2.       Will perform other duties as requested by the President or Board of Directors

If you are interested in serving in one of these positions please email oakridgewildlifemanagement@gmail.com or come to one of the board meetings.
