    What I'm thinking we will do, is take these bios from those who accept their nominations, and read them at the BOD meeting. The Board and those present during the Board Meeting will decide down to 2 or 3 (depending on number of nominations) members to present to the full membership attendance on Sunday during the Chasing Coral Screening.

    Because this BOD meeting is EXTREMELY important for the club, I'd like to give a bit of additional interaction to those who will be attending it.

    Everyone will then vote as to who would be best to represent the club for this nomination during the actual member meeting.

    If you have been nominated and accepted your nomination, it would be awesome if you could make this Sunday's meeting for our members to interact with before voting. Meeting begins at 12PM at Justin's and I can PM you his address if you're interested.

    I respectfully decline the nomination. There are many people in this hobby who have done much more to contribute to the advancement of our group and of our coral population in San Antonio. I sincerely appreciate the nomination, but I would like to advance the nomination to one of our board members, Justin Neison has done much more for our group and his tank is an excellent example of what our hobby is about. I know the board has specific requirements and rules regarding not participating in certain events, however, the purpose of this is to highlight members who have progressed our hobby.

    Please se accept his nomination.

    Thank you

    Because this contest is judged by a third party panel of Neptune employees, I would be ok with accepting that BOD members could be nominated. Can I get 2 charter members to second and third this nomination being that it is for a BOD member?
