*Officers of the Corporation +Associate Directors
Qualifications for members of the Board of Directors are as follows:
A Nominating Committee is created that includes 3 members to scout for interested members to run for office.
The Nominating Committee shall submit a final list of candidates for each board position the Friday prior to election day.
The candidate list will be posted at the Club by the evening of the next Saturday and absentee ballots will be available.
Each paid-up member shall be entitled to one vote on each matter submitted to a vote of the members. Members are allowed to cast absentee ballots if unable to attend membership meetings at which elections or voting on revisions to By-laws occurs.
In all other cases, matters submitted to a vote of the members must be voted on in person. Concerning elections to the Board of Directors, members may cast one vote for each vacancy. The term “paid-up member” is synonymous to “member in good standing” and means all dues paid thru the month preceding the scheduled membership meeting.
The ballots will contain blank lines so the names of additional candidates can be written-in if nominations are made and accepted at the membership meeting on the night of the elections. Anyone nominated by the membership at this time must be present to accept nomination. Any votes for anyone who has not accepted nomination will be deemed invalid and any such ballots will not be counted.
Paid-up members desiring to cast absentee ballots may do so beginning the evening of Saturday through Friday prior to the election by contacting a board member.
The absentee ballots will be collected and counted along with votes cast by the general membership the night of the elections. Those casting absentee ballots understand that they waive the right to vote for write-in candidates as who they may be is unknown at the time their ballots are cast.
Absentee ballots are final; anyone who is able to attend the election due to a change of plans after casting absentee ballots will not be given replacement ballots.
