WGPO is now soliciting nominations for two-year terms for two of the three slots on the Executive Committee (positions currently held by Stephanie Steele and Larry Rand) and three of the five slots on the Board of Player Representatives (positions currently held by Rick Wong, Steve Pellinen, and Ruth Hamilton).
As stated in WGPO bylaws:
The management of the WGPO shall be vested in an Executive Committee, made up of three WGPO members elected by the WGPO membership. The Executive Committee is empowered to act for the WGPO with respect to the business of the organization. It shall supervise, administer, direct, and control the operational affairs of the WGPO.
An elected Board of Player Representatives shall act for the membership as a body in making those policy decisions that are not decided by a vote of the total membership.
Any member of the WGPO who is in good standing and who is 18 years of age or older when his or her term of office would commence is eligible for election to these positions. Any member may nominate another member or himself or herself for a position being filled. The nomination shall include the nominee’s name, an e-mail or mailing address, or both, if known, and the position for which the member is being nominated.
Nominations will be open until the end of November. Nominees will be expected to provide a brief statement of their interest and eligibility which will be available to all members prior to voting. Voting will be conducted online (with provision made for an alternate method) during the first two weeks of December.
Nominations should be sent to members of the Nominations and Elections Committee, Susan Beard (email@example.com and Diane Weinerman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
