Call for Nominations: ISOC-NY Election 2012

isoc-nyISOC-NY is a 501(c)3 corporation, chartered by the Internet Society. Under our By-laws we have to hold an election every two years for our various offices and board of directors.

The current officers and directors terms were supposed to end on July 31 2012, and fresh terms beginning on Aug 1. However due to procrastination – July was a busy month- the election has been put off til now. But we should get it done in the next two weeks. Newly elected officers and directors terms will be backdated a month!

So, this leaves us just a matter of days to hold the 2012 election, so we’d better get on with it!!

Nominations: Aug 14 – Aug 21 2012 Midnight EST Voting: Aug 23 – Aug 29 2012 Midnight EST

According to our By-laws the offices are

1. President.
2. Executive Vice-President.
3. Administrative Vice-President.
4. Secretary
5. Assistant Secretary.
6. Treasurer.
7. Assistant Treasurer.

Only the Secretary and Treasurer are permitted to hold more than one position.

There is a minimum of 7 directors and a maximum of 15 directors.

If you look at the Community Portal you’ll see we currently have 10 directors.
The officer’s roles are clearly defined in the Bylaws. What does it mean if you become a director? Well.. it’s hoped that you will attend meetings/events, but more to the point you will be added to several mailing lists:

1) ISOC-NY BOD list, where we hash out the nitty gritty of ISOC-NY activities and policy.

2) the North American Leaders regional list, where we share thoughts with our fellow USA Chapters.

3) the Chapter Delegates list, where we share thoughts with our chapter colleagues around the world.

So, we are looking for nominations! Self-nominations are fine. Just one thing, please make sure that you are a member of the chapter! This can be done by going to https://portal.isoc.org/EBusiness/Home.aspx and checking your status. If you’re not, just join – doesn’t take a mo’!

Then send your name, with a brief statement of interest saying why you’d be a good director, to mailto:nomcom@isoc-ny.org before midnight next Tuesday Aug 21 2012. If you are also interested in standing for one of the offices say so. You will then be approved, or not, by the nominations committee.
