2018 SCCV Board Nominations

Post by MX5VT » Sun Nov 26, 2017 7:30 pm

It's finally the time of year to announce open nominations for the upcoming 2018 SCCV Board elections! We need you to nominate those who you think would best fill the positions on the Board of Directors for 2018.

Below is a list of the positions that are re-elected each year. The position's descriptions have been filled out a bit to give a better picture of the duties, but we have provided a basic overview to capture the essence in a sentence or two. With the exception of the role of President, you do not need prior experience. Everyone is welcome and on the job training is free.

If there is anyone you think of (including yourself!) that could fill any of the positions listed then please utilize the following survey:


A. Nominations are live as of this announcement. Nominations will CLOSE on 12/12 and this survey will expire.
B. A new survey link will be created at the end of day on 12/12 with the valid nominees for the purposes of VOTING.
C. Voting will conclude at our December meeting (12/19).

If you are unable to complete the nomination survey please leave a comment in this forum with your nominations. If unable to complete the voting survey, please message myself or Orianna Pecor (opecor on the forum) with your choices for tallying.

Rules for nominations
1. Nominees for the President position must have prior experience on the Board of Directors.
2. A nominee must receive two nominations to be included on the election ballot.
3. A nominee should be capable of and willing to undertake the majority of the tasks outlined in the job description. It is expected that tasks will be shared amongst the board members as time and capabilities allow.
4. Elected board members must commit to attending the majority of events and club meetings held throughout the 2018 calendar year (circumstances allowing).
5. Nominees will need to accept the nomination prior to voting. Nominees cannot run for more than one position simultaneously. Should a nominee receive sufficient nominations for more than one role, the nominee must choose what position they desire to run for and forfeit running for other positions.
