Overview of Elections

Dave Banta gave an overview of how elections were to be held.  To run for a position, the candidate must be a member in good standing according to the By-Laws.  This means an individual must have attended at least 3 meetings and paid their dues.  In order to vote, an individual must have attended at least 2 meetings and paid their dues.  To have a quorum to hold elections there must be 7 members in good standing plus the members of the Executive Committee (Zach Adriaenssens, Eric Jacobson, Dave Banta).  


Zach Adriaessens reviewed the positions and their responsibilities that were being voted on.  He then asked for nominations from the floor.  The following people were nominated by the members:

President:  Eric Jacobson was nominated by Alex Shindness.

Vice-President:  Catherine White was nominated by Eric Jacobson

Secretary:  Emily Griswold was nominated by Eric Jacobson.  Brian Sumlin nominated himself.

Treasurer:  Kevin O’Gara was nominated by Eric Jacobson
