** Correction:  As a point of clarification – The previous announcement incorrectly stated that the GSPCI board elections will be held on Wednesday, September 6th. While a portion of the election process will be conducted at that meeting, the actual election will be held at the November 1st meeting, in accordance with outstanding by-laws.
