On behalf of the JETAA NY Board of Directors, we hope this message finds you well! As we approach another election season for our executive officers, we wanted to reach out to everyone with a quick timeline of the selection process for those who might be interested in running for an officer seat. In accordance with our bylaws, the selection of executive officers will be made by the Board of Directors based on the platforms that are received. As always, the President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary roles are those seats that are open to interested members. While some of our current officers may run again, all 4 positions are open for the 2011 term. We encourage anyone who is interested in a position to please submit a platform. Position descriptions are online at http://jetaany.org/forum/elections_2008/topic-483/?recent=503. Officer positions are held for one year starting April 1 and ending March 31 the following year.
The time line for the election process is as follows:
February 23: Platforms Due / JETAANY Event (Meishi Exchange): Meet the Candidates
March 1-15: Platforms are evaluated by Elections Committee
March 16 – March 19: Confirmation of Votes by Board of Directors
March 20: Election Results Announced via Email
April 1: Position Term Begins
If you wish to be considered for a JETAA NY executive officer position, please send your platform to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 23, 2011. Your platform will be reviewed by the elections committee and selections will be made by a vote of the Board of Directors.
Good luck to all our potential candidates!
