It's time to start the process for electing our chapter's Executive Board for 2021. Per our By Laws, we hold nominations in October, elections in November, and then install the new board after that (we've been doing this at our Holiday Party in December).
Here, we'd like to ask for your nominations for board positions, consisting of the Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer -- see below for descriptions. You may nominate yourself or another Chicago Chapter member for any position. The current board will verify that each nominee accepts the nomination. We then will form up the ballot and distribute them in November for voting.
This is the first time we've solicited nominations online, so please contribute to show your support. Only Chicago Chapter members may participate. You must be logged in to the chapter website to participate. If you have any questions, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please submit your nominations by Sunday, 25 October 2020.
