Elections – Past and Present

From the May 2010 Afterglow

Voting in the 2009 election for Treasurer and Secretary ended in mid?December. Thanks to Nancy Lowry’s careful counting, the results showed that you re?elected Chuck Story as Treasurer and elected Sarah VanAuken Hulcher as Secretary. Sarah was installed at our January Board meeting. At the same time, Latham Schweitzer Coates was reappointed as Development Chair, and Mike Meads as Volunteer Coordinator. Many thanks to Reid Downer and Cathie Maguire Hartley for serving on the Nominating Committee and to Peggy Layne for her previous years as a prompt and efficient Secretary.

This year the positions of President and At?large Board Member are up for election and the position of Facilities Chair is up for reappointment. A nominating committee will be created in June, and nominations will be accepted by mail, phone, or email anytime through August. In September and October the committee will develop the proposed slate of nominees to be approved by the board of directors and the ballots will be mailed by November to all qualified voters.

Those who contributed money or in?kind contributions during 2009 or 2010 are eligible to vote and will receive ballots with short candidate biographies. As Vice?President, Cammie Hutton chairs the nominating committee and is coordinating the election this year. If you are interested in serving on the nominating committee, or are willing to consider serving in one of the open positions, please contact Cammie (see contact information below). Given the planned schedule of Afterglow mailings, this is the ONLY call for nominations that will be published. Watch the Foundation web site for announcements about elections throughout the summer.
