Nominations for 2015 MASA officer
positions opened at the November MASA meeting and will remain open until
the end of the holiday party on January 3, 2015. Nominees will have until
January 5 to accept their
nomination and become a candidate, or decline their nomination and
have their name withdrawn. Nominees do not become candidates until
they accept their nomination.
The election/vote will be held at the
January 8, 2015 MASA meeting. However, if there is only one candidate
per officer position when the nomination period closes, MASA custom
and precedent allows us to confirm those candidates as your 2015 MASA Officers without holding a formal vote.
You may nominate yourself or a fellow
club member by emailing current MASA President
or by posting the nomination to the Yahoo masarocketry email list. Reminder - MASA officers must be current NAR members and MASA members.
The current officers are:
President - Neal Higgins
Vice President - Jeff Taylor
Treasurer - Carol Marple
