ECR Board of Directors

2017 Board Elections

The results are in, the ballots are counted, and our four candidates for the ECR Board of Directors won in a landslide (a term that makes Ed a little nervous).

New Board members are:

  • Allan Hurst
  • Annette Graff

Returning for another term:

  • Carol Cook
  • Ed Wilson

The measure to amend the ECR Charter and Bylaws also passed. The revised version of the Charter and Bylaws is available on the Club Info/General Information page of this web site.

Thanks to all ECR members who voted in the election!

Board meetings are open to all ECR members. For the date and location of the next Board Meeting (usually at a local restaurant), please see the ECR Calendar. If you are interested in attending, please contact any Board member to let them know you're coming.

Elections

Elections for members of the Board are conducted each year in February.

To provide for alternation and continuity, three positions are up for election each year. Usual terms are two years beginning in March. Special elections may be conducted as needed to fulfill terms not completed.

Board positions are limited to full members. New students are not eligible to vote or hold office until they complete the Plus class.

Ballots go out in early February, so candidates need to declare their intent to run by the end of January. Ballots are counted and results announced at the last Wednesday club night in February.

Job Descriptions

For the benefit of members who are interested in running for a Board position or just helping the club, the Board has written brief descriptions of three Board positions (Administrator-President, Secretary, and Treasurer) and two other jobs that may - or may not - be done by Board members. These are to give you an overview of ways you might want to get involved in the club.
