ELECTION OF OFFICERS
Each March, AAUW-WHC elects officers for the following year. Since our branch meetings are still via Zoom, we will again use Survey Monkey to hold the election electronically.
The Nominating Committee submitted the following nominations:
President-elect: Anne Amador
Vice President for Program: Lilian Care
Vice President for AAUW Funds: Debbie Campbell
Corresponding Secretary: Becky French
Finance Officer: Diana Tiberia
Step 1 – “Nominations from the Floor”
Under “normal” conditions we would be face-to-face in a regular meeting and members would have the opportunity to make nominations from the floor. The presiding officer would announce each nominee put forward by the Nominating Committee and would then call for further nominations for that office. At that point in the meeting, a branch member could nominate another member (with that member’s consent) or nominate herself. If any additional nominations were made, the branch would then have multiple candidates from which to choose for that office.
This year the process to call for additional nominees is being done via this newsletter announcement. This newsletter is sent to all branch members, any of whom may nominate another member or herself for any of the five offices to be filled following this process:
- Secure the agreement of the person being nominated; then
- Send the name of person and the office for which she is being nominated to Carolyn Morris, President, either by email or “snail mail,” so that all nomination(s) are received no later than Friday, March 19.
If any additional nominations are received, they will be announced at the March 20, 2021, branch meeting.
Step 2 – Voting
The voting will be conducted using Survey Monkey. Following the March 20 meeting, each member will be sent an email with a link to the ballot. Watch for Step 2 later to cast your ballot.
