Re: Nominations for ISSA positions

I'd be happy to sign on as a Member at Large if you think you need a third body.

Cristina had expressed an interest in setting up a web site, but she hasn't checked back in since then. I'd be more than happy to assist her.

I'm still having internet issues at home, so I'm not sure when I will be able to check back in.

Cheers, everyone - looks like an awesome slate to get ISSA going!

Re: Nominations for ISSA positions

With only 4.2 billion posts to your name, I'm not sure you qualify Ann

Re: Nominations for ISSA positions

@Patrick

Section 1
The Board of Directors shall consist of seven (7) members, including President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Exhibition Coordinator and two members at-large. The number of directors may be increased or decreased from time to time by resolution of the Board.


Ann thank you, but a 3rd won't be necessary at this time. Diana and Patrick have already been nominated and accepted. This is not to say that if someone should nominate you that we wouldn't put it to a vote...we will.

I've been involved in many elections before where there is established protocol, but never one to start up an organization and I really don't know how long we should leave nominations open and when we should have the vote. I have looked up Robert's Rules on Elections and there is nothing that pertains to our situation. If there is only 1 person nominated for a position they are automatically in by acclaimation...so far the only vote we would have is for Membership.

Does anyone have any thoughts on how long we should leave nominations open?

I think I'd like to get going on this soon. The thing that some people could say is it's all a bit WetCanvas heavy, but without this forum it wouldn't have happened anyway - and then when we get members who aren't on WetCanvas, eventually it'll get weighted away as this forum loses ISSA relevance and it's own website and/or magazine gains relevance. That's where the members will come from in future anyway. So I think the sooner the better unless someone has more suggestions.

Re: Nominations for ISSA positions

That's the way I was feeling too, Patrick. Were you thinking a day or 2...a week?

Wow, I haven't checked in in way too long. This is coming together very nicely. I'd just as soon vote tomorrow!

I don't think it unreasonable to begin things as soon as possible.
