SLSA Board of Director Candidates

SLSA+logo1There are 3 people nominated for positions on the SLSA Board of Directors for the election to be held June 1st.  Their applications for consideration are listed below:

My Name is JohnnyWhadd and I wish to stand for election and an SLSA Director. I am willing and able to serve the full six month term from the dates needed of me and/or beyond.

As a person who lives life to love, laugh & learn, I have been fortunate enough to provide my efforts and my skillset in a variety of capacities. First, starting in High School, i volunteered at St. Josephs Hospital as an ER tech, then, moved to FLA where I learned to surf in rl and worked as a p/t lifeguard in Grayton Beach. This is where I learned to surf and to love mother ocean. Through the next decade, I found myself helping out with AWARE (animal Welfare and rescue) Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross, i am a certified C.E.R.T. officer, Managed fund-raising efforts for the GRRA (Golden Retriever Rescue of Atlanta), and recently, Have been assisting in the educating of our youth in the areas of our Constitution and 2nd amendment rights. I was taught at an early age that it’s really not about what ya got, but rather what you give! So I am here to be the best person i can, to help and recruit newcomers and to win as many comps as possible. >.<

I would like to gain a healthy knowledge base which would allow for possibly another term as a director.

Being as new as I am to the SLSA, I am gaining more and more of an understanding of what this great organization is all about. At the moment, I really do not see an adverse issue but will keep an open mind to assess and apply my best efforts to resolve.

Disclosure:

I have read the SLSA Constitution, and understand the importance of how the SLSA is organized and somewhat of how it operates. it was created in the first place.

—————————————————————-

I’m Alvaro Pevensey, I’m willing and able to commit my time and serve a full term. I’m a Team Tai Chi Zen member, I don’t own any products or teams, I just love to surf.

I started surfing around the start of 2009, On Mori. I also had a hut in Monkey Cove and surfed there as well. I started competing last season, the second of 2012 and absolutely loved it, the atmosphere and the friendships. I see the SLSA as a link between us all, keeping surf alive and helping others to love surfing for the sake of surfing. I’m canadian, in Toronto, I’ve worked in advertising all my life, I’m fully bilingual, english/spanish, and would like to contribute with that to the SLSA and all its members, current and all new members we might turn into surfers.

That’s all, thank you.

– Alvaro
—————————————————————

My name is Robbin Ember.

I am ready and willing to serve a term, as I have before, on the board.

I am affiliated with Montego, for fun and friends.

I have no commercial affiliations.

I have some experience, but I have no patience or use for small clicks or political groups. I just know that I love this group, and have many friends, and that is most important.

As I have posted before, believe it or not, my feelings and thoughts are all in the shape of a heart, always, and that is my only interest. .
