Election of Officers and Members at Large for 2019



Nominating Committee

In accordance with the Bylaws a Nominating Committee was formed at the November Meeting. The Chairperson of the Nominating Committee is Brian Cooper. Brian could use at least one or two more volunteers to help on this committee. Please contact Brian if you would like to volunteer at elections@connyak.org

The Nominating Committee is responsibile to submit a list of nominees for the various offices, including Members At Large of the Executive Committee. The list of nominees shall be published on the web site no less than two weeks before the Annual Meeting. These nominees, and any others who are nominated from the floor at the Annual Meeting, will become candidates for election to the various offices.

General Schedule of the Election

There is a requirement in the bylaws that the list of nominees be published at least two weeks before the January meeting, which for our Jan 23 meeting date would require the list to be published no later than Jan 9.

The Nominating Committee will accept the names of nominees up until midnight Dec 19, 2018. This will provide sufficient cushion around the holidays to submit the list and to have it published on the web site.

Members can vote via email, or they can vote at the January meeting. Voting by email will close at midnight January 18, 2019.

At the January meeting nominations for officers and members at large will be accepted from the floor. Ballots will be given to all members present at the meeting which will list the names of persons nominated by the Nominating Committee and persons nominated from the floor.

The Nominating Committee will count all ballots submitted via email and cast at the meeting. The Nominating Committee will then present the names of the newly elected officers and members at large.

The Nominating Committee will be responsible for the election process including any modifications to, or clarification of, any procedures or rules. The Nominating Committee decisions will be final.

Submission of Nominations

Members are encouraged to submit their name to the Nominating Committee via email at elections@connyak.org

The Officers are President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer. There are three Members-at-Large that can be elected.
