Ballots for the ROC 2016 election are being prepared and will be mailed shortly. Please take a moment to ensure your mailing address on the member portal is up to date.
Each Executive, Life, and Board Member should receive a ballot. You will also receive information submitted by the candidates.
The ballot will be postage paid, so you simply mark up to five (5) of the six (6) candidates and drop it in the return mail.
We will also publish a notice when the ballots actually go out in the mail, so you can be looking for yours.
Results will be announced at the Annual Membership Meeting, which is held at November ROCstock. Visitors are welcome, of course.
The ROC board has extended the deadline for self-nomination for board positions through this weekend.
There are a number of members, and regular guests, who volunteer to help with the tasks needed to keep the club running. However, the board of directors generally are the ones who ensure things get done and the club operates as efficiently as it does.
Last year we didn’t hold formal elections because there were not enough members who self-nominated to fill the available positions. Vacancies were filled with appointments by the board. Those appointments were valid until the next (this) election.
We are in danger of having the same situation this year. At present we do not have enough nominees to fill the five positions that are up for election.
