Yes, it is that time of the year. Official nominations for the 2012 GATR Board of Directors opened at the BOD meeting tonight. Of course we nominated ourselves
Nominations will remain open until the January chapter meeting where we will elect next years BOD. Please do nominate members for a specific BOD position. Nominations require 5 chapter members to make each one official. You may nominate in this forum thread, but then 4 others must post in support of your nomination. We need 7 voting members on the BOD, four of which have to be president, vice president, secretary, and treasurer. We can have more than 7 people, but only 7 can vote on official chapter business. So if you want do something, say lead children's rides, it is perfectly acceptable for you to nomination yourself to be the Director of Youth Cycling. And yes more than one person can be nominated for the same position so there is an election. Here is a list of proposed positions with nominations made at the BOD meeting:
President: Clay Combs
Vice President: Cheryl Kopatz
Secretary: Steve Drabant
Treasurer: Laina Hamilton
