The Election Committee announces that an election for the Offices of President, Vice President/Secretary, and Treasurer, of The Subcommittee will be held later this year.
The Election Committee, per its charter in the Articles of Incorporation, is now requesting Candidates for Office, from the membership.
If you or someone you know is interested in being a Candidate for one of the three Offices, please contact The Chairperson of the Election Committee – Jeffrey LaRue. Jeff can be reached by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by post at 920 Indian Creek Lane, Crownsville, MD 21032 USA.
Nominations will require a formal nomination request and a nomination “second,” by e-mail or post. Nomination by telephone is not acceptable.
All Candidates for Office are expected to be members in good standing with The SubCommittee. All persons elected to Office are expected to remain in good standing for the duration of their term in office.
Ideally, each member who wishes to run for Office will have access to the Internet as that is a principle means for the officers to communicate and transact SubCommittee business. Candidates are also required to submit a short write-up that describes who they are, their qualifications, and why they are running for office. These writes-up must be submitted and received by the Election Committee no later than July 6, 2008 in order that they can be published in the September 2008 issue of the SubCommittee REPORT.
Election Ballots will be mailed as part of the membership renewal process and are expected to be mailed around mid-October 2008.
All who wish to have their vote count in this election must (a) be a member in good standing for the 2008 membership year, and (b) have their ballot received by the Membership Chairman, Don Osler before December 30, 2008.
