Greetings Mustangs:

This is the year to elect new leadership of the Mustang Association.  We will hold elections for President, Secretary, Treasurer and five (5) Directors.  Mustangs currently holding these positions have done so for three (3) and one-half years.  It is now time that a new regime step-up and “Continue to March” toward keeping the Mustang Association moving forward.

The term of office for the majority of current Officers and Directors will come to an end this year.  It is time for a new regimen, new leadership!!  I am seeking members to step up and lead us into the future.  This is your Mustang Association, your interest should motivate you to serve in a leadership position.
