This page is to provide updates and documentation for the 2013 Freeside Board of directors elections. Announcement of elections (sent to list):
Presidential Nominees (in order of stated intention to run)
Director Nominees (in order of stated intention to run)
It's that time of year again - elections are coming up for President and 6 Director seats on November 5th.
There will be some changes because of the new Bylaws, so Treasurer and Secretary will be appointed positions selected by the Board.
We have also moved to staggered Board seats with One-Year terms for Board members with 3 elected every 6 months. To get this process started, 3 of the new Board members will be elected for 6-month terms so that we can hold the second election in 6 months. Therefore, the 3 Board members with the fewest votes will serve a 6 month term.
Also, as part of the Bylaws changes, Board Members are required to be current Freeside members.
We will be accepting nominations until November 1st. Nominees can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and Eldon will add you to the ballot. You should also announce to the mailing list your intentions to run with some kind of qualifications/platform.
