Nominations for 2001 MASA Officers

Our current leadership is retiring at the end of this year, so we have three elected club positions to fill!

At the MASA meeting on Tuesday, November 7, initial nominations were taken for the positions of President, Vice President, and Secretary / Treasurer.  Nominations will continue to be accepted through December 1.  You may nominate yourself.  You may ask another to nominate you.  You may nominate, well, pretty much any other MASA member at your discretion.  Additional nominations are definitely solicited!  We are looking for capable and dedicated people who would like to step forward and serve their club.  In particular, we need someone willing to fill the vital role of Secretary/Treasurer.

Nominations may be sent to Russ Durkee

If you have been nominated for a position, you may accept or decline the nomination by letting Russ know.

This link will lead you to descriptions of the duties of the MASA officers.  If you're interested in being a candidate, but have additional questions, please feel free to contact any of the current MASA officers.

UPDATE:  On December 2, all nominations that were neither accepted or declined were stricken from the list.

Nominees for President

  • Alan Estenson (nomination accepted)

Nominees for Vice President

  • Steve Robb (nomination accepted)
  • Lee Frisvold (nomination accepted)

Nominees for Secretary/Treasurer

  • Glen Overby (nomination stricken)
  • Dave Fergus (nomination accepted)
  • Kerry Hodges (nominated in absentia, nomination stricken)


The Candidates and the Election

On December 2, those who have accepted nominations will become candidates.  The candidates' names  and any information that they choose to provide will be presented on the web site and in the MASA Planet newsletter.

At the January meeting, the official vote will be tallied.  If you are able to be present at the meeting, you will vote at that time.  For those MASA members who will be unable to attend the meeting, but who wish to vote, we will set up a sort of absentee ballot system.  The details of the absentee ballot will be announced by mid December.

One vote per position will be accepted from each unique MASA member number.  For example, if you hold an individual MASA membership, you get one vote.  If your family holds a family membership, you get one vote to represent your entire family.  Confused?  If you look at the back of your MASA name badge, you'll see a member number.  If you have an individual membership, your number is unique.  In a family membership, all family members have the same member number.  So, each unique MASA member number gets to vote once.
