We had a great General Membership meeting on May 20, 2007. There was constructive and lively discussion. I wish there were more members represented at the meeting but there were 38 to 40 members present. That is considered a good turn out. Please keep in mind that the July 15th meeting is for the General Membership to elect the board members whose terms end this year. It is very important that you support the candidates of your choice. We all know the old adage, "you get what you pay for". So, pay attention, spend time thinking of who should represent you and give your valuable time to attend the election meeting. In this way, we'll all benefit.
Thanks, Kellee for doing such a great job as Community Manager.
Bernie Reyes, Treasurer
When President Richard Frantz appointed the Nominations Committee, he requested that two items be enacted, along with the regular tasks of the Committee. Item number one was that a form be made up for all candidates to fill out and item number two was that the Absentee Ballot process, previously approved, be enacted. These tasks were, and are, being completed.
The candidates who returned the Self Nomination Form will have their names pre-printed on the Ballot. The candidates who are nominated from the floor at the July General Meeting (Elections) will be asked to fill out the form, at which point the Board of Directors will go into a closed session to review the forms. After this is completed, the names will be given to those in attendance and the voting will begin.
The Nominations Committee mailed out the process for Absentee Ballots and return postcards on which to vote, along with a cover letter to all Members-in-good-standing. If approved by 2/3 of those Members-in-good-standing returning the postcard ballot, the Absentee Ballot procedure as prescribed by Attorney John Stieh and Mary Iverson, Co-Chair of the Rules and Regulations Committee (including the change from July to May for accepting nominations from the floor) will be enacted for the 2008 WLLA elections.
It must be stressed that this vote is only for the Absentee Ballot process, which is separate from the proposed Bylaws. In no way does this vote include or affect the proposed Bylaws. These are two entirely different issues; therefore, only the passage or rejection of the Absentee Ballot process will be determined by this vote.
