The elections for new members of The ESOP Association’s Board of Governors will take place first quarter 2013. The Nominating Committee will soon make the nominations for this year’s elections. All voting members of the Association are eligible for nomination.
Corporate and Professional members of the Association will vote on these nominees for Board of Governors if there is, or are, no nominees by petition. Article IX, Section 2.c. II provides that any member qualified to be a member of the Board of Governors may have his or her name submitted to the voting membership, along with the slate nominated if a petition signed by the 50 voting members of the Association is presented by that person to the President of the Association.
If representing a Corporate member, that person must also submit evidence that his or her employer consents to her or his seeking election to the Board of Governors. If no one is nominated by petition the Association’s bylaws provide the current Secretary/Treasurer will cast a proxy vote for all voting members for the Nomination Committee slate. This article serves as notice of this procedure for nomination by petition.
To be considered for service on the Board of Governors, please write, fax, or email your message expressing your interest to ESOP Association President J. Michael Keeling, by February 1, 2013. A packet of information, including paperwork to be completed for presentation to the Nominating Committee, will be mailed to you.
