“We encourage everyone to do their part to slow the spread of the coronavirus, follow the directions of your state and local authorities, avoid social gatherings, and if possible, stay home and away from people. Soon enough we will be back to playing pickleball regularly.” Update March 19, 2020 (1:00 pm PT)
The TMPC Board of Directors voted during the March meeting to allow members the additional option to online vote this June to fill upcoming vacancies on the board. Previously, members were required to attend the annual membership meeting to vote on paper ballots. The manner of voting will be determined soon, but please know that votes will be kept confidential!
Members in active standing will be able to vote in person at the meeting or online prior to the meeting. (Updated 3/3/2020.)
To see who is currently running for the four vacancies that will open up July 1, 2020, please visit our Board Info page.
And thank you to past board member, Paula Cobb, for suggesting this needed change!
