Announcement : A Call for Election Committee Volunteers 09 April 2013
Our annual election is just around the corner, and a majority of the
EC positions are being vacated as long time volunteers are moving on
or retiring.

We need several volunteers to fill the vacant positions on the
Election Committee. Any member of the project eligible to vote is
eligible for membership in the EC, the exception being members of the
Advisory Board.

Please consider volunteering to the Election Committee. The EC is an
interesting and very friendly group; and next to maintaining your
individual web sites, the work you will do with this committee is one
of the most important and necessary jobs in the USGenWeb. The EC is
charged with conducting the National Election each summer, but also
conducts appropriate polls and SC elections upon request, as well as
maintaining the member and voter registration lists.

The following links are helpful if you want additional information.

If you can volunteer, please contact Gayle Triller - gaylelt@comcast.net

If you have any questions, contact me or your regional representative.

We would like to hear from you by Tuesday, April 16, 2013.

May I please hear a general consent motion to approve this slate of
USGenWeb Project Election Committee voluneers.

The USGenweb Project Election Committee submits the following slate:

membership in the EC, the exception being that no Advisory Board
member may serve as a working member of the EC.  From the list of
volunteers, the EC shall select new or replacement members for the EC.
This list of volunteers shall then be submitted to the Advisory Board
for approval and confirmation. The Advisory Board shall not be allowed
to "pick and choose" any individual committee member, but must approve
or disapprove the slate as a whole.. Should the Advisory Board
disapprove the slate of members in its entirety, the process shall be
repeated."
