Without any additional nominations, there are no challengers for any of the positions open for election. This means that, should there be no additional nominations, the slate of officers as presented here will be elected by acclamation – without the need for a vote. Should any additional nominations be made, we will hold our elections by online vote from June 20 – 24, 2022. More details on how to vote will be sent to all members in good standing in advance of polls opening.
MORE ABOUT HMC ELECTIONS
Part of the business of the first elected board that took office in January of 2021 was to establish the terms for elected positions. It was determined that terms will generally be 3 years in length, excepting where a shorter term is necessitated by any early vacancies.
To ensure a consistent rotation of experienced board members and fresh voices, an election rotation has been established where the Secretary, Treasurer and half the Directors-at-Large will be elected in the first year and the Chair-Elect, Chair, Membership Secretary, and the remaining Directors-at-large will be elected in the second year.
The third year will see no elections other than those required to fill unforeseen vacancies that the board feels must be filled before the next planned election.
Elections are typically held electronically via our website, where every member in good standing is eligible to cast their vote. If you are not sure whether your membership will be active during the election period, please reach out to our Membership Secretary, Kathie Zalasky at email@example.com
