Hey Jamie,
Upon Amanda's resignation, the board elected me to complete Amanda's term (ending in 2017).

Per the bylaws, Article VI, Section 7, "Any officer or Board position vacated may be filled at a meeting of the Board of Directors.The person filling the vacated position will hold that position for the remainder of the current term."

Hope this helps.

No problem! I was a little unsure myself but looked back at the Board terms. :)

Sorry my bio is a bit late getting up, but here it is!

My name is Vicki (with Enzo the baby deer terrier and Dex the pink tailed BC) and though I have only been with the club since this past spring, I feel like it's been much longer due to how awesome and welcoming this community is! I picked up a disc at the urging of a friend in a desperate attempt to build a better relationship with my border collie. Long story short, it has been the best decision ever and I'm so happy to have gotten involved in this amazing sport. I am not new to dog sports, as I also train for agility, rally, obedience, nose work and herding and have been involved with dogs for many years at this point.

I am nominating myself for the secretary position. I feel that I would be a great fit for this position because I am detail oriented and have strong organizational skills. On a daily basis in that job-that-I-have-to-do-to pay-for-all-my-dog-stuff, I work with dental providers at an insurance company. My entire work week revolves around taking very detailed call notes and reading over communication received from providers with a fine tooth comb to make sure it meets legal/audit requirements. This type of work is most definitely something that has left me well prepared for a secretary position - meeting minutes will never be lacking detail!

While I can't say that I have ever held a board position in this type of format before, I have been involved in various committees and held leadership positions on these committees that could be considered similar overall to a board position. In my last job, I was the chair (leader) of an annual fundraiser for 3 years in a row. Over the course of those 3 years, I grew our fundraising total from
$90,000 the first year to over $105,000 the last year that I was there. My role involved tons of networking (internal and external), idea generating and organizing. Overall, I feel my experiences from this would be of benefit to the club as I am both comfortable and competent at building bigger and better events and can help grow our club.

Thanks for reading...I know I can be a bit wordy, but hopefully you learned something about me and I am grateful for the opportunity to run for this position!

I've been involved in the sport and club since 2009 and have been on the board for a large portion of those years. I have done a variety of tasks for the club in the past. My wife, Jodi, and I have hosted many events at our Claremont farm. We hope to continue our involvement in 2017-2018 helping out where we can.

Camie Pederson's Bio

I have been involved in the MNDDC for a few years now and was on the board for one year.While on the MNDDC board and as a member in general I have learned a lot about the sport. I have learned how to be a judge, help with announcing and music, set up and tear down, and organizing and participating in demos.

I have lots of experience in groups like this. I was the treasurer for my flyball club for about 15 years. I also belong to a non-profit group called Wakota CAER where I am the treasurer and have been a member since 1999. Wakota CAER is a community awareness and emergency response group located in Dakota and Washington Counties.

I started playing disc about 20 years ago with my first border collie. And was so excited a few years ago when I learned about MNDDC. As for puppy dogs, I currently have two border collies (Solo and Jedi) that live for disc and flyball. Although we didn't get to compete this year due to the acquisition of a house with a large fenced in yard, being out of town or cancelation due to rain, next year we plan of changing that. I also may be bringing another puppy into the Pederson Star Wars Universe.

I look forward to getting back into disc in 2017 and would be happy to be part of the board for this great group.
