Here are the Candidates for the MAPS 2015 Officer Elections and their biographical statements:
Greetings to all Middle Atlantic Planetarium Society members!
One of the most important yearly charges of the President and Executive
Committee is to oversee the elections of officers and Board members.
There are specific regulations for the timing of election procedures.
Sometimes, despite the best of intentions, there is difficulty meeting
the prescribed deadlines and this official notice results from a missed
deadline this year.
In this cycle, the only nomination for President-Elect came in after the
official November 1 deadline, so for equity purposes the Executive
Committee wants the entire Membership to have the opportunity to make
any final nominations. Therefor, the Executive Committee has voted to
extend the nomination deadline by one month. This allows for all
nominations to continue until December 1, 2014. The election will take
place, this year in an on-line process, in January. If you or any MAPS
member you know is interested in being nominated or nominating another
for a position, please email the Election Committee chair, Jason Archer,
(email@example.com) as soon as possible. With the extension, a
nomination and second is required by December 1 in order to be placed on
the election ballot.
Thank you to all who contribute to MAPS’s success and strength as an
organization by participating in these important proceedings.
Alan Davenport, President
and the MAPS Executive Committee
