Just a couple of quick updates regarding Saturday’s annual meeting:
Time and Place
Our annual meeting will start at 4:00 PM on Saturday and will be conducted online via Google Meet. The meeting link is as follows:
The single agenda item for the meeting will be to take nominations from the floor for our board of directors elections, and the meeting should be complete by 4:30 PM.
If at all possible, please take time to come to the meeting. Per our by-laws, we need at least 1/3 of the membership of the meeting in attendance to conduct business. And our only business item will be to open the floor to nominations so that we can officially start our voting process.
And please take a brief moment to vote once you receive your ballot.
Candidates for the Board
We now have a full slate of board-approved candidates! Thanks again to Shannon Wooster, Tom Harrison, Courtney Ruckel, and Bob Chivvis for serving on this year’s Nominating Committee. The candidates are as follows:
- Dave Verbrugge for Commodore
- Nancy Black for Senior Vice Commodoere
- Brie Busey for Racing Vice Commodore
- TL Stanbro for Harbormaster
Once we start the meeting, we will open the floor to nominations, and you can nominate any ASC member in good standing for any of the open positions. As soon as this process is complete, we’ll close the meeting.
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. We’ll continue to use the ElectionBuddy to manage the 2022 election. And 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.
Party at Courtney’s Next Week!
And this just one more quick reminder that we’ll have an informal end-of-season party at the Forget-Me-Not Nursery next week on Saturday evening. We’ll have more details about that out shortly.
