Election of Officers
The Nominating Committee will present nominees to fill vacant director positions on the board.
A call for nominations and expressions of interest shall go out to the membership sixty (60) days prior to the AGM and Election. Nominations close thirty (30) days prior to the AGM and Election. A proposed slate of Director candidates is put together by the Nominating Committee in advance and presented at the AGM. Call for nominations from the floor will not be accepted.
In the case that there are less than or equal candidates to the number of vacant seats, the slate of Director candidates is acclaimed. If there are more candidates than seats, an election is required. An election requires a quorum of membership and is done by ballot. Ballots are counted and the results are announced at the AGM. A motion to accept the acclaimed/elected Directors shall be approved by the membership.
