DC Academy Board Volunteers Needed
We will be having nominations for board members at our April seminar. We are in need of a volunteer for vice president (6 year commitment) and director (2 year commitment). For directorship, outside of providing input on issues that are brought before the board (e.g. creation of scholarships), there is not much of a time commitment for the position. The vice president becomes president and that entails drafting a few newsletter items and presiding over 3-4 board meetings during the presidential year. Please contact Larry Koffer if you are interested in becoming the vice president. Without volunteer input, the DC Academy cannot continue as it has for 60 years.

Remote Viewing Sites
Please remember that we have many simulcast sites open to DC Academy members. The sites are located in the following towns: Dover, DE; Annapolis Junction, Baltimore, Bowie, Frederick, Gaithersburg, Rockville, and Waldorf, MD; Leesburg, Richmond, Winchester, and Yorktown, VA; Morgantown, WV; DC Academy members may attend at no charge at simulcast sites, but members must pre-register by sending an email with their name and site they wish to attend by 5:00 pm Monday prior to the seminar. The intention of setting up group viewing simulcasts is to foster the collegial nature of our seminars. If you have any questions about the simulcasts, please contact Larry Koffer or 703-733-0556.

Job Board Postings
In order to expedite the placement of classified notices on the seminar bulletin boards and on the classified section of the website, please email your notices prior to the seminar. This insures the correct wording is on both the bulletin board and the website. We will not be able to accept notices for immediate posting during the seminar.
