Two Vacant Board of Director Positions

We currently have two positions vacant on the Board of Directors.  The descriptions for each of these positions are below.  If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in serving on the Board in these positions, please let me know.

As a clarification of the Sports Directors position, I think the latest Modern Pentathlon is a great example. It would have been great to have someone in our organization coordinating with them and further assisting them with volunteers such as for translator as Irene Leung is doing etc.  There may or not have been able to tie in our Sister Cities.
