Our November meeting is scheduled for Saturday, November 17th at 11:30 AM.
The location is the Golden Corral on West 38th Street. We will be conducting elections for all positions that are either open, or are currently filled by officers that were appointed by the BoD since the last election.
Candidates must announce their intentions to run by Saturday, November 3.
Online voting will be administered by Oran Sands and will begin on November 3rd, and end at 8 AM on November 17th. Oran will provide more details on online voting as we get closer to the voting period. There are no proxy votes, all members have the option of voting either online or in person at the meeting. Please thank Oran for helping with this process if you talk with him.
At the meeting, we will give candidates a chance to speak and we will give members an opportunity to ask questions of candidates. We will provide paper ballots, each paid member is allowed one vote per position, and their significant other is allowed one vote per position. Ballots will need to have the member or significant other’s name written legibly on them to count. Mary and Doug will see the names as we tally and validate, and once Mary and Doug agree on the winners, the ballots will be disposed of.They will ensure that all voters are paid members, and that we do not have any duplicate voters. At the end of the meeting, Mary and Doug will announce the new officers for the following year.
The next election after this one is scheduled for November of 2019.
