UROC 2010 Officer Elections UPDATED 8/10

voteIt is once again time to elect your UROC officers. This yearly election is the way for you to voice your opinion on how the club should proceed in the upcoming year. Please try to attend this important meeting. If you have ever considered helping out with a position in UROC, this is an excellent opportunity to do so.

It was decided this year that we would hold elections earlier into the year so that the new officers could watch/learn from the existing officers for several months prior to taking on the full responsibilities of their new positions. This is in hopes that we can better transfer the knowledge and procedures that are so important to our club's operation. Hopefully, by giving the new officers the opportunity to work alongside the current officers for a time, a higher level of continuity between the old and new administrations will be realized by the membes of UROC.

 

 

Nominations are currently open and will continue up to the August meeting. If you are unable to attend the upcoming meeting but have a nomination you'd like to make, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your nomination. The prospective nominee will be contacted and will be given the opportunity to accept or decline the nomination. Again, the new officers will work alongside the current officers for the remainder of 2009. The new officer's actual appointments will begin during the January 2010 UROC Member's meeting.

Keep in mind that anyone that is running for any of the positions will be expected to make some kind of brief statement regarding their qualifications and plans if elected during the meeting. If a nominee cannot be at the meeting but still wants to run for an office they should provide (through private messaging or email) their phone information to the president. This is so the nominee can be contacted during the elections to present their platform.

Here are the current nominations for each position up for election. We will add any new nominations up do the day of the meeting to this article.
