Back To Business

The NWI Chapter August meeting will be held at the Oregon, Illinois depot. This will be our first meeting back after summer vacations with plenty of chapter business.

First on the agenda will be the nominations of chapter officers. A nominating committee shall be formed and consist of three members. One current board member and two members at large will make up the committee. Their task will be to solicit the membership and others for candidates to serve on the NWI Board of Directors for two (2) years. Any non-member nominee will have to become an NRHS member by December. This nominating committee must be in place by September’s NWI Chapter meeting date.

The nominating committee will submit their nominations to the membership at the October NWI Chapter meeting.

All contested offices will be decided by paper ballot, which will be tallied at the November NWI Chapter meeting. Ballots will be included in the November North Western Limited newsletter mailed to all NWI/NRHS members.

Next on our list of things to do, setting of the NWI Chapter meeting dates from September through May 2019.

2019 is our 50th anniversary as a chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. Despite any other feelings, 50 years as a recognized organization is quite an accomplishment. We are planning on several commemorations to mark this occasion. We need your help with this endeavor.

As in the past, I would like our chapter to make a donation to the Oregon depot fund in appreciation for the use of their depot and grounds.

All of this chapter business shall begin at the Oregon depot with our Board Meeting at 6:00pm. Our Board of Director’s should take note.
