Club Officers

There are four LAGERS club officers that handle all things LAGERS. Officers serve one year terms and are nominated every April and elected during a closed club meeting every May. If you would like to nominate yourself or someone for an officer position, help the officers, or offer any suggestions, you may either email us at lagersclub@gmail.com or send us a message on our facebook page. We will gladly add an official role if you would like to volunteer your time for a particular function. We are always looking for help.

Note: This last year was a high officer turnover so the position of Past President was added to aid in transitioning the new officers.
