The Nominating Task Force has made its recommendations for the three open positions on the Board of Directors. Our By Laws allow for the submission of additional Nominations by Members (self-nominations), as a substitute for "nominations from the floor" at the Annual Meeting.
The By laws state:
Section 3. Nominations by Members.
Any member of the corporation may nominate one or more additional candidates for election as directors of the corporation by submitting to the secretary of the corporation, in writing or by electronic transmission, not later than three weeks prior to the date of the meeting of members at which directors are to be elected, a statement setting forth the name, address and qualifications of each proposed candidate, accompanied by a written consent of each proposed candidate to be named as a candidate and to serve as a director if elected.
In order for self-nominations to be available in time for review on the website and on the ballot, they must be received by the Election Committee prior to emailing of the ballots to members and the beginning of the voting.
The email voting will begin on July 21. Nominations from Members, including supporting statements must be received by Midnight EDT, June 30, 2009. Other details about the election will be posted by the Election Committee in the coming days.
