Northern Indiana Unit 154
American Contract Bridge League
A Message from the President
The Unit's Board of Directors wishes all of you a Happy New Year. For all of us who have stayed here in Hoosier-land, it is going to be a very cold start to 2018. I suggest that we all get down to our local clubs a play some hot bridge.
The petitions have been delivered to the ACBL. The District 12 Board of Directors have unanimously approved accepting us into District 12. The District 8 Board of Directors voted 9 to 5 to deny the transfer. Since there is not consensus on the proposed transfer, the issue now goes to the ACBL's Board of Directors. This Board will meet in early March and our proposed transfer will be one of the agenda items. The 25 members of this board will vote on our proposed transfer to District 12. Hopefully our 85% approval rate will impress the ACBL's BoD.
Another issue of importance is the 2018 election for representatives to the Unit Board of Directors. There will be vacant seats representing Gary (1), Kokomo (1), South Bend/Mishawaka (2), Fort Wayne (1), and Angola (1). If you have an interest in the governance of Unit 154, then become a candidate for one of these vacancies. The nomination process is a snap. You self-nominate by completing the appropriate form found on this website and send or mail it so that it is received by May 15 to:
All elections will be held between June 1-15. Be an active participant in the governance of our Unit.
Again, Happy New Year to all of you. May 2018 be one of the best years in your bridge life. And remember:
Trust your partner and be a partner that can be trusted.
