Timetable of 2020/2021 GAGB Executive Elections

All GAGB members are eligible, and encouraged, to participate (stand, nominate or vote). As long as you are an ‘active’ member (interacted with us at some point in the last three years) you will receive a ballot to your registered email. Inactive members can request one even after that. More details & rules are on the forum and the GAGB website.
This year there are two elections one for GAGB Chair and a second election for the eight Committee Member posts. Each candidate needs to receive two nominations from active members and in the proper GAGB forum to be valid, and the nominee must ‘accept’ the nomination by the due date.
The Chair post is for two years and the Committee Member posts are for one year.
All meetings are held online usually one per month.

Hello GAGB Members:

I accepted the role of Returning Officer for the GAGB annual elections after Sharon asked me to serve for a tenth consecutive election. I am having a hard time believing I have already worked with this organization for a full decade. I look forward to assisting with a smooth and fair nomination and ballot process.

Sharon provided the dates of the nominating and election periods in the post above mine. Note that unless two or more Members stand for Chair Elections OR nine or more Members stand for The Committee Elections, SurveyMonkey ballots will not be sent for the respective election(s).

Please do not hesitate to contact me through my GAGB profile, via direct e-mail to ladybugs at geocachealaska.org, or by posting in this thread if you have any questions or concerns.
