December 14th, tonight at midnight is the close for all the Executive Board Nominations for the 2017-2018 Election.
We are accepting nominations until midnight and then they will be closed. If you are a member in good standing and you want to nominate someone for the election, This Is It.
I want everyone to have plenty of warning so I am posting this to Facebook as well.
The Board voted on Tuesday to use the recommendation of the Election Committee and move to the online voting. We (I) am pretty excited about using this system and we gave it a run through over the weekend and it worked as advertised. The only way that anyone can even tell if you've voted is if everyone votes, by default you will be in there. But otherwise it is totally anonymous.
We will start the voting next week once the ballots are ready. The only delay is that the certifying of the candidate pool and the acceptance of all the nominees. Then a double check and it will be on. We will still leave the window open for the membership voting for awhile, since this is new to everyone I will go slow. But I am really looking forward to the process.
There will be postings of the candidates bios which I will include on the ballots
Good Luck to everyone voters and "votees" alike and pray for the sanity of the Executive Director (which is already in question.)
