NORML of Waco on has filled several key positions on its board of directors during its December meeting.

Originally slated for the meeting was an election, however due to low voter turnout and the candidates running unopposed, those candidates have been appointed to the positions they were seeking.

Carla Miller is now the non-profit organization’s treasurer, while Lesley McConnell fills the role of secretary. Both Stephen Carter and Clif Deuvall remained in their roles of deputy director and executive director, respectively.

The position of communications coordinator is still vacant.

A non-board position was filled by appointment as well, as Bryan Duncan, a former U.S. Marine, steps into the role of Veteran Outreach Coordinator. The non-board positions of Event Coordinator and Volunteer Coordinator remain vacant. These positions are by appointment only at this time.

The election will still be held, and will take place during January’s meeting on Thursday the 14th at the West Waco Library and Genealogy Center.

Also announced during the meeting was a canned food drive. Everyone is encouraged to bring as many canned food items to the January meeting as they would like. The food will be donated to local organizations who help those in need.

Plans were also finalized for the marijuana law reform rally which will be held on Saturday, Dec. 12 at the intersection of Waco Drive and Valley Mills Drive, which is the same place that the previous rally was held in September. The rally will take place from noon until 3pm.

The rally will be a come and go event, attendees can come and take part for however long they like during the three hour span as the organization raises awareness in central Texas about the need to reform marijuana laws by reducing penalties, establishing medical programs, and legalizing the non-toxic plant so that it can be regulated similarly to alcohol.

Lastly, the West Waco Library and Genealogy Center was secured as a meeting place for NORML of Waco for the duration of 2016.
