The August meeting was at the Gosport aquarium in Gosport Indiana. Everyone that attended had a great time. We wish Niki and Brian the best of luck on their December grand opening.
The September meeting is the annual INDMAS Retro Frag swap on September 14th at tbabcock67 home from 4-6. The address is 8118 Alamosa Drive in Indianapolis 46236. Troy has one of the most thought out setups in the club and is one setup you cannot miss.
This retro swap is a Club Members only event. This is old school no tanks no lights no electricity bring what you have to sell or trade just like it used to be. Cash and Carry no layaways.
Nominations for the 2020 board have now officially started club! Per the INDMAS By-Laws, and in order to have more time to train any new BOD in preparation for the frag swap…the newly nominated positions will now be taking office on November 1st, 2020.
Nominations will remain open until the night before the meeting on October 12th, 2018 and voting will take place at the same October monthly meeting (Must be present to vote!!). If you are interested in running for one of the offices below you can nominate yourself or you may nominate another member. If another member nominates you, please accept or reject that nomination on this thread! There is no limit to the number of nominations accepted per position.
This is a great opportunity to give back to INDMAS, help assist your local non-for-profit club grow and educate, and to show your reefing pride!
So without further adieu here is the list of open positions and current nominees!
