The Membership and Elections committee brainstorm and follow through on ideas for how to attract new members to the School of Living and present any new members to be approved by the board at the annual membership meeting in April of each year. They oversee the elections of the 1/3 of the Board of Trustees that are up for renewal or replacement each year at that same annual membership meeting. They find out who wants to continue on the board and recruit new board members to stand for election as needed. Then they run the election of the board of trustees.
