Running Effective Elections

For Family Councils who have decided to hold elections the process should be planned well in advance because it usually takes more than one to two meetings and several steps are involved.

Given that many people, while they may have participated in an election, may not have organized one, some steps are outlined here to help you organize and run a successful Family Council election.

Guest Post: Trapped poem



Where goes the mind

When it’s been tossed

Depleting the memories

Abandoning thoughts

Words don’t come easy

No flow from your tongue

And those that escape you

Seem nonsense to some

Just what do you see

Through unfocused eyes

A jumbled up picture

A puzzle disguised
