Our Peace Center Annual Membership Meeting
Our Annual Membership Meeting was held on Saturday June 22 in Walnut Creek. We shared an abundant and nourishing potluck, heard introductions from our current Board Members and from our nominees to the board as selected by our Selection Committee. All present members were given a ballot and were asked to vote for their chosen officers. We are pleased to announce that all current members that were up for re-election after their 3-year term, and all 4 nominees were elected unanimously to our board, which is now 16 people strong, the most powerful board in our history.
Our four newly elected board members are: 1. Connie Loosli from Walnut Creek, an Education Specialist for the Lindsay Wildlife Museum; 2. Pandora Bethea from Crockett, an English teacher at Deer Valley High in Antioch; 3. Rick Sterling from Walnut Creek, a retired senior electronics engineer at UC Berkeley Space Sciences Laboratory; and 4. David Seaborg from Walnut Creek, an environmental leader and founder of the World Rainforest Fund.
We also brainstormed in small groups to find the most important issues we should address this coming year, and we had the pleasure to hear from Dr. Jerry B. Brown, an expert on nuclear radiation who is working to prematurely close Diablo Canyon, the last remaining nuclear power plant in California and who recently received a resolution of support from our Peace Center. Our next Annual Membership Meeting will be in June 2014 – The date and location shall be announced next spring. We hope you will come and vote with us.
