On behalf of the HOTO Emmaus Board, please accept our sincerest apologies for the delay in getting this slate published in a timely manner. As a board, we faced obstacles at the end of the year that prohibited us from approving the slate; therefore, delaying the voting process. We now recognize that our lack of transparency caused some members in the community to question the motives of the board. We apologize for this and thank you for your forgiveness.
The 2013 Board and the new slate of nominees for the 2014 Board completed 7 hours of Upper Room training this past Saturday, January 25. As a board, we are committed to improving our operating practices and becoming a more effective board in this upcoming year. Through the Upper Room training, we are now better positioned to support the HOTO Emmaus community more effectively through a clearer understanding of our roles and our responsibilities to you, the community. You should begin to see some immediate changes in the very near future while other changes will take a little longer to implement. Please know that we are working diligently to strengthen our structure while being as transparent as possible.
Communication is the #1 priority in 2014! However, in order for us to communicate with you, we need updated information. When you cast your ballot, please be sure to include the following information:
FIRST & LAST NAME
CITY, STATE, ZIP CODE
HOME PHONE NUMBER (IF APPLICABLE)
CELL PHONE NUMBER
WALK COMMUNITY (Example: Heart of the Ozarks)
AREAS SERVED ON PREVIOUS WALK (IF APPLICABLE)
AREAS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SERVE IN THE FUTURE
WOULD YOU LIKE TO SERVE ON AN UPCOMING WALK?
If you have a spouse or child at home that has also been either to Emmaus or Chrysalis, we ask that you include their information, but list it separately.
If at any time you have a question, concern or comment for the Board, please email us at email@example.com. We will address your note as quickly as possible. Once the roster for the 2014 board is confirmed and published, you may also reach out to one of us at any time.
Thank you for supporting and encouraging the Heart of the Ozarks Walk to Emmaus! Without you, we would not exist today. We look forward to serving you now and in the future. Please keep our community in your prayers as we work to strengthen our frames both as a board and as a community. We know that God is faithful and He is at work among us through Emmaus. We are also confident in this, “that He who started the work, will be faithful to complete it…” Philippians 1:6
