It’s election time once again. No, I’m not talking about the national mid-term elections, but rather the annual election of officers for the 2019 Bluebonnet Miata Club. Our by-laws require a nominating committee be formed in August, consisting of three members, approved by the board and presented at the membership meeting the same month. These three people will be charged with finding viable candidates for each of the executive board positions of the club. These consist of president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer.
During the next sixty days the committee will set criteria for selection of nominees, receive nominations from the membership, and also search and interview candidates for each of the board positions. All positions are considered open to any member (in good standing) desiring to run for office.
The nominating committee will present its recommendations at the club meeting in October preceding the annual business meeting in November. During the October meeting, members may nominate additional candidates for inclusion in the slate of nominees. At the conclusion of the October meeting, the nomination process will be closed, and members will have thirty days (30) to contemplate their selection for each of the board positions.
The election of executive board officers will be at the annual business meeting of the club in November. The election of board officers will be by secret ballot and will be elected by a majority vote of those members present at the meeting. Each membership receives one (1) vote.
The future success of our club depends on good people devoting their time and effort to ensuring that the club continues to meet the needs of all the members. Each of the board positions requires dedicated people who really care about our club and want to make it even better than it is now. Are you someone who has an idea or a vision to improve our club? Then consider running for one of the executive board positions? Or, do you know someone who you think could do a great job? Then please consider passing their name to the nominating committee.
We have a great club with a lot of available talent
so let’s go find the best of the best
to represent the club in 2019.
Our Nominating Committee was presented at the August 28, 2018 meeting, it consists of:
David Hamilton, Richard Sandenaw and Jim Voss
They are now taking suggestions for nominees for President, Vice President, Secretary & Treasurer
