Call for Nominees to the Minnesota Atheists Board of Directors
Nominations for the Minnesota Atheists board of directors will occur at the January 17, 2010 meeting at the Ridgedale Public Library and elections will be held at the February 2010 meeting. Nominations will open and close at the January 17 meeting. We will publish and mail candidates’ statements prior to the February meeting elections.
There are nine positions to fill, elected in the following order: President, Associate President, Chair, Associate Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and three Directors-at-Large. Our bylaws provide that anyone who runs for one position and loses may run again for any other position that has not yet been elected.
Some incumbents will likely run for reelection, but there will also be vacant seats. All terms are for one year. Now is your chance to step forward to help guide Minnesota Atheists.
Candidates for all but the three director-at-large positions must have been members of Minnesota Atheists for at least one year as of the time they assume office (March 1, 2010). Candidates for the three director-at-large positions must have members for six months.
You must be nominated by another Minnesota Atheists member. You cannot nominate yourself. You need not be present to be nominated. (If you wish to nominate someone not at the January 17 meeting, please check beforehand to make sure that person is willing to serve if elected.) Nominees should send candidate’s statements (up to 150 words) and a jpeg headshot to the MNA newsletter editor at firstname.lastname@example.org by January 25, 2010.
