It’s that time of year again when we elect our Board of Directors for the coming year. Would you like to serve on the Idylwood Election Committee? If so, just contact a Board Member.
What exactly is involved in serving on the Election Committee? That’s easy. Our By-Laws set out exactly what the Election Committee does!
3. An Election Committee of three Members shall be elected by the Members present at the regular June meeting (i.e., two months prior to the Annual Meeting). An Election Committee Chair shall be selected by and from the members of the Election Committee within two (2) weeks of Committee formation or thereafter will be appointed by the President. This Election Committee will accept nominations for Board membership and will determine that nominees are eligible to hold office (based on Club membership requirements outlined in Section 2.4 of the Amended and Restated Restrictions for ldylwood Addition). At the regular meeting in July (i.e., one month prior to the Annual Meeting), the Election Committee shall report to the Club in writing the nominations for each office. Additional nominations may be made from the floor at the regular July Club meeting (i.e., one month prior to the Annual Meeting). In addition, Members may write in candidates on the ballot they submit. Elections shall be made at the Annual Meeting by ballot or by official early ballot.
4. Members of the Election Committee shall conduct the elections, including but not limited to design the ballots, determine the methods of distribution and receipt, count all valid ballots, announce the names of the newly elected Board members at the Annual Meeting, and retain all ballots until the next Regular meeting, then destroy them.
Absentee voting begins on July 28 this year and ends on August 15.
