New Nominations Procedure for 2018 Delegates Meeting

During the 2016 Delegates Meeting, a vote was made to change our nominations process. A committee, appointed by the Gauvorstand, was tasked with developing a process that would allow potential candidates to announce their interest in running for a Gauausschuß position prior to the Delegates Meeting. Armed with this information before the Delegates Meeting, the Gauverband Vereine would now have an opportunity to discuss the candidates and make an informed choice.

Even if you can't get the actual greeting to me by then, please let me know what size ad you or your Verein wants, and then take another week to email it. You can send a pdf of a finished ad or words and pictures/graphics for me to finish the ad for you. Ads will be in color.

Ehrenmitglied Sepp Kaindl & Bavarian Press

Gau-NA's Ehrenmitglied Sepp Kaindl has had a lot of press in Bavaria--and so have we! The articles written by Beate Bentele have been excellent. There are now five of them and they are all combined in one pdf.  Sepp also did two radio interviews which are in separate links.  Take a look and listen to all!  The upcoming September issue of the Gauzeitung has more photos and an article in it about Sepp.
