Aloha Everyone.

Another year is coming to a close and that means its time for the election of M.G.A.A. board members for 2012. Last year MGAA changed from a governing board of 4 officers to a 7 member Board of Directors. Last year MGAA also changed the policy of electing officials at the last general meeting of the year to electing board members utilizing online voting at This year nominations for the M.G.A.A. Board of Directors will also be done online at Both the nomination process and voting are completely annonomous. You may nominate yourself or anyone you think might make a good board member. At the close of nominations, all nominees will be contacted by me to see if they are willing to run. Nominations open on Friday, November 11 when I send current MGAA members the link to the online nominations.
Note: The MGAA Board of Directors meet the first Thursday of every other month, (when needed).
