It is that time again for the fall elections. I would like to know if you are interested in making a difference in the way that disc golf is formulated around Kansas City.
The positions that are up for election are as follows:
Vice President of MO
Secretary (Former resigned)
All Course Coordinators:
Shawnee Mission Park
In addition to these offices, we would also like to start to work with people that want to help with the 2009 Pro/Am Worlds and start to set up committees to make this event run smooth. The Committees will vary, and will want to use your expertise in many areas to help us out. The location for the meeting is to be determined, but with the by-laws, we need to have 30 days notice. We are looking at the 13-15th of November to make this happen. The Club Championships will be November 3-4
If you are interested in this position please contact Tavish Sanders our Sgt/Arms (913) 449-8381 or Dirk Hacker Vp of KS (816) 678-4468.
Here are the by-laws for the election process.
6. Nomination and elections of EC members. An election committee, consisting of two members of the EC who are not up for re-election, shall ensure that the elections are held according to the bylaws, including ensuring that the nominated members are active and are willing to accept their nominations. A call of nominations will be announced to all active (dues-paid) members via postal mail and/or email notification 30 days before the fall general membership meeting. An active member may nominate any other active member, including him or herself. The election committee shall announce the nominees for each office, and then ask for further nominations from the floor. Nominees from the floor must be present and agree to run before their nominations are accepted. All nominees (or their proxies) will have the opportunity to speak to the membership and answer questions. Ballots will be distributed as needed. All ballots will be collected and counted by the Election Committee, who will announce the winner before moving to the next officer to be elected. Each office will be voted on separately in this order: President, VP of MO, Treasurer, and the CCs in alphabetical order or VP of KS, Secretary, Sgt-At-Arms, and the CCs in alphabetical order. All at-large officers will serve two-year terms, with the President, VP of MO, and the Treasurer elected in odd-numbered years, and VP of KS, Secretary, and Sergeant-at-Arms elected in even-numbered years. Course Coordinators will serve one-year terms. Newly elected officers will assume office at the first Executive Committee meeting following their elections.
I would encourage you to use this forum to post why you feel qualified to handle the role you are requesting, and will create another forum to discuss the candidates.
