Please keep this thread on topic and keep as serious as possible as this is a very important time for the club. As I want to ensure that people that are nominated are actually interested in running, I would ask that all people nominated are either self-nominated and seconded by another member of the club or reply to this thread that they accept the nomination. Please also include the position you are niominating the person for. If there is someone that you feel strongly about and would like to see on the board or you have nominated someone and they have not responded to accept the nomination, I encourage you to reach out to them via pm and ask them to put their name in this thread for consideration. I will update this thread as the nominations become official and have been accepted The official positions are as follows: President houser Vice-President gimmito Treasurer - GDawson Sponsorship/Public Relations Coralreefer Secretary The intent is to make the election official at the October 8th meeting. If there is only one candidate for an office then barring any objections, they will automatically take office. If we do not have enough people nominated by the October 8th meeting, we will conduct the elections via a forum vote shortly after. New officers technically take office immediately and work with the exiting officers through year end for transition purposes. As we are limited right now in the number of people willing to step up an be on the board, I ask that at this time we only take nominations for the 5 main BOD officers. Per the by-laws the 4 at-large positions can/may be filled at a later point if the interest is there and we have a full slate of people.
