Dear All
I spoke with Morteza and encouraged him to come forward. He said he'll think about it and let us know. So far no response. After talking with Bahram, I think we should focus on younger generation and possibly with more energy and new ideas. We also need to activate our Facebook and use Social Media.
I agree with Firoozeh about getting together on Thursday May 29with all nominees present.
Regarding the election date, there is no rush so we can decide after the gathering.

Hello all,
I agree that having an elected board is more acceptable than just announcing the 5 candidates.
I suggest we try our last chance to invite more people to come forward and nominate themselves.
I like the idea of getting together next week, our usual end of the month gathering at Sorento and invite people to come for dinner or drink, meet the 5 candidates and possibly consider to nominate..
Hopefully, by end of the night we can recruit 2 or more candidates.

Dear Bahram,
Thanks for your efforts so far and for your informative message.
I believe an elected board is much more stable. So I suggest we go for your option 1 and try to secure any last chance and then go for option 2 as plan B. Do you also want to post the announcement on SUTA's FB and LinkedIn?
