Election Notice to Blues Society of Western New York Members

2020 Board of Directors Election



Dear Valued Member:


Each year the Blues Society of Western New York (BSWNY) conducts elections for available seats on the Board of Directors. This notice is to inform all active members of the upcoming elections. This year we have five (5) open Board of Directors seats.


The BSWNY is a working Board and the Directors are active in all matters, including events, budgeting, marketing, and social media. We actively support our committees and programs. Prior Board experience is not a requirement, just a dedication to our mission of “Keeping the Blues Alive.”


We have several exciting positions to fill that can be carried out as a member of the Board, such as information technology (website maintenance), social media expert, marketing, and event coordination. Serving on a not-for-profit Board is a rewarding experience. If you have expertise that you believe could benefit the BSWNY, or if you are just looking to be more involved in YOUR Blues Society, we would like to hear from you!


Please send a letter of interest and a brief bio to be reviewed by the current Board of Directors.

Letters must be received by November 9, 2019; notification of candidates will be sent out December 1, 2019 via email*. Elections will take place at Blue Thursday on December 12, 2019 during our annual meeting/holiday celebration with The Jeremy Keyes Band at the Sportsmen's Tavern, 326 Amherst Street.


You may email your letter of interest to or mail to: Nomination Committee, Blues Society of WNY, PO Box 129, Buffalo, NY 14217. If you require further information, please feel free to contact me. In addition to the above email, I can be reached via phone call or text at 716-378-7042.
