Annual Meeting

October 16, 2009

Stonewall Jackson Hotel & Conference Center

Staunton, Virginia


The meeting was called to order at 11:50 a.m., by Lawrence McConnell, President.

McConnell reported that the winner of this year’s VCOG citizen award was Carol Lindstrom, and the winner of the media award was Mike Owens, of the Bristol Herald Courier.  The government award was shared by the City of Alexandria and the County of Fairfax.

McConnell further reported that the terms of Lucy Dalglish, Mark Grunewald, Waldo Jaquith and Patricia O’Bannon will expire this year, and that the Board of Directors has recommended them to the membership for continued service.  McConnell asked if there were any additional nominations from the floor, and there were none.  Upon a motion by Wat Hopkins, seconded by Matt Paxton, the membership voted unanimously by voice to re-elect Dalglish, Grunewald, Jaquith and O’Bannon.

There being no further business, McConnell adjourned the meeting at 11:53 a.m.

Respectfully submitted,

Craig Fifer
