Request for Nominations for Board Members

Each year 3 board member positions are available for elections. This year the following positions are up for election, all for a 2 year term:

President – Position is currently held by Kathleen Brophy (Bajabetty). She is standing for re-election

Secretary – Position is currently filled by Kat Chatten (attackkat). She is standing for re-election

Director at Large – Position currently filled by Brian Lang (Brilang). He is stepping down for other geocaching duties. The BoD would like to thank Brian for his many years of helping with almost everything. It will certainly be hard to replace him, and we will certainly miss his knowledgeable input.

The nomination period will run from April 7th to 28th, 2019.

To be nominated for a position on the board, you must be a member in good standing and you must be nominated by a member in good standing. Nominations are done by an online form, which can be found HERE.
Nominations will be received by our Returning Officer, Tony Bearman (skramble)

Please consider standing for a position. We need volunteers to keep the organization going. We are only as good as the volunteers we have, and can do a lot more for the community with a strong volunteer base. If you have any questions about what being a board member entails, please send an email to Kathleen at [email protected] and she will be happy to answer your questions.

What happens next?

If there is only one nomination for a position, that person will be accepted by acclamation.
If there is more than one nomination for a position, there will be a vote. All members in good standing by March 15th will be able to take part in our voting process.
Voting is conducted using SimplyVoting, a third party, online voting mechanism. Our voting period is from April 7th to April 28th.
On May 2nd you will receive the notice of our meeting, which will give you further instructions on the voting process.
