Email nominations to email@example.com through but not after Wed, March 2, 2011.
In keeping with the club’s bylaws, we will use the occasion of this annual meeting to conduct official WRC elections:
Members will have the opportunity to provide nominations, including if desired, a statement of endorsement, for the offices of President and Vice President
Nominated members will have the opportunity to give a brief statement of their qualifications
President and Vice President will be determined by majority vote of members, present and in good standing (dues paid)
While the board did transition in December 2010, the selection process employed did not strictly conform to that set forth in the bylaws. It has been one of the goals of the acting (since December 1, 2010) board to bring the conduct of the club more closely into conformance with established bylaws. Having no wish to emulate Moammar Gaddafi in unlawful consolidation of power, the acting board is glad to facillitate this opportunity for free and fair elections to be conducted for WRC!
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!
