    Two extremely qualified and dedicated cross country skiing volunteers have offered to run for the open positions of Vice President and Treasurer. The 2016 Annual Meeting Ballot contains a brief statement from them that outlines their qualifications. Both candidates are running unopposed. However, our by-laws require that candidates be presented to the membership for election. A copy of the by-laws, along with a listing of current officers and board members, is available here.

    Additional agenda items can be directed to, Executive & Athletic Director. Please RSVP if you are planning to attend so appropriate space and materials are available.

    Members under the age of 16 must have their vote cast by a guardian.

    Please print out and complete the attached ballot with signatures of members and guardians if appropriate. Return the ballot to CXC Skiing, P.O. Box 930442, Verona, WI 35593 or bring it with you to the annual meeting. Mail in ballots should be received before May 17th. After ballots are received they will be logged in and names will be removed to ensure anonymity.
