Notice of 2021 Annual Meeting

This post was updated 10/8/2021 at 9:51 PM

Just a couple of quick updates regarding tomorrow’s annual meeting:

Candidates for the Board

First, we have a full slate of board approved candidates! Thanks to Steve Ryan, Jody Willing, Tom Harrison, Nancy Black, and Tom Gauge for serving on this year’s Nominating Committee! The candidates include the following:

  • Dave Verbrugge for Senior Vice Commodore
  • Christopher Cryan for Education Vice Commodore
  • Teri Stanbro for Treasurer
  • Bart Hawkins for Secretary
Voting Procedure

During the annual meeting, we will open the floor to nominations … and please feel free to run for any of the open positions. Assuming that none of the positions are contested, elections will open at 5:00 PM on Saturday and will remain open until 11:59 PM on Sunday. If we do have a contested position I may need an extra hour or so to add the additional person to the system.

Once the elections are open, each membership (not each member!) will receive a ballot via email. This electronic ballot will go out to the email address associated with the account when you signed up for membership. From there just follow the instructions in the ballot.

We Need a Quorum!

If at all possible, please take time to come to the the meeting. We need at least 1/3 of the membership of the meeting to conduct business. And our only business will be to open the floor to nominations so that we can officially start our voting process. I promise to keep the meeting under a 1/2 hour. And please take a brief moment to vote once you receive your ballot.

We’ll Celebrate Soon (I hope!)

We had a wonderful 2021 sailing season, and I’m bummed that we can’t all be together to celebrate right now. But we will look for an opportunity to celebrate the season once it’s responsible to do so, so stay tuned for updates on that front!

The original article published on 9/20/2021 is below:

This is your official notification of the ASC’s 2021 annual meeting. Due Alaska’s extreme Covid-19 numbers and struggling hospital system, we’ll definitely be meeting virtually. It’s obviously the responsible thing to do, but more than a little sad since everybody was hoping for a reprise of our amazing 2019 annual meeting at Forget Me Not Nursery!

Since we’re doing this online, we’re going to keep business to a minimum. The agenda will be as follows:

  1. I’ll give a brief state-of-the-club address.
  2. Teri Stanbro will provide an annual Treasure’s Report.
  3. We’ll open our elections and allow a call for nominations from the “virtual floor”.
  4. We’ll kick off the voting process

Just like last year, we’ll be using ElectionBuddy to manage the voting process. And please join us if you can! We need a quorum of the membership present, and per our bylaws that’s 33% of the current memberships. (And that means we only need one member present per membership…)

The meeting will take place at 4:00 PM on Saturday, October 9th. The meeting info is as follows:

Thanks, folks. Hopefully we’ll see you virtually at the annual meeting. And before then we hope to see everybody at both the Northern Lights Regatta and the Fall Work Party!
