On behalf of Kathryn Rose, APLA President, I am writing to inform you that
we currently have two candidates for the position on the APLA executive of
VP New Brunswick, after our previous candidate stepped down.  The
candidates are Courtney Boudreau and Victoria Volkanova and their bios are
below.  As a result, I would ask that you vote via the link below to select
your desired VP.  *Voting will close at 5 pm (Atlantic time) on Wednesday,
