This year I appointed 3 members to serve on the nominating committee. The 3 members were Dave – AI6VX, Doc – W6EW, and Tom – N6YX. They completed their mission and presented a slate of nominees at the last board meeting. I want to thank Dave, Doc and Tom for volunteering for this important function.
The slate of nominees for 2023 are as follows:
|Brian Milburn||K6BPM||President / CEO|
|Tom Saunders||N6YX||Treasurer / CFO|
|Levi Maaia||K6LCM||Director at Large|
|Dave Schmidt||AI6VX||Director at Large|
|Wayne Beckman||AF6GX||Director at Large|
|Mike Wapner||K6QD||Director at Large|
|Matt Lechliter||W6XC||Director at Large|
We will officially be opening additional nominations for all positions at the October 21 2022 meeting. Any member in good standing can nominate another member in good standing for any elected position above. A member in good standing is any member who is paid up on their dues. Additionally, a nominee must be a member in good standing for the period of 28 days prior to the election. This year, that day is October 21, 2022.
This year we will be allowing on-line voting, mail in voting, and in-person voting. As such, there are various cutoff dates we need to set so that we can do all our work behind the scenes. Here is the schedule:
- October 21 – Open nominations from the floor at meeting.
- November 6 – Nominations from the floor close at midnight.
- November 10 – Mail-in and online voting begins at midnight.
- November 16 – Mail-in and Online ballots close at midnight.
- November 18 – Election night – In-person voting, tallying, etc.
There is also a bylaws change proposal on the ballot this year. The bylaw changes mostly involve the way we now handle the membership system, and the way we pay bills and expenses. Normal procedures such as auto-pay, credit card and debit card purchases, were never addressed in the current Bylaws, however it is the way we pay most bills and expenses. The proposed changes merely bring the Bylaws up-to-date with the times.
