The Board is in the process of filling three vacancies through an election. When we announced these openings two months ago, we received applications from many excellent candidates, and are grateful to all who applied.
Pursuant to the by-laws, candidates were chosen to be on the ballot by a Nominating Committee made up of six members of the Board. The Nominating Committee’s mandate was to select candidates thought to be in the best position to serve MACDL in the years ahead and also reflect diversity in terms of gender, ethnicity, age, and geographical location. All the candidates who were not selected were invited to be on the ballot with the support of ten members of the organization.
Because our by-laws require a slate of at least six candidates overall, the three Board members with the most longevity are also on the slate and will be up for re-election. They are all very active on the board and their respective committees, and we hope that you will re-elect them to their positions.
MACDL members will have received the ballot on September 3, 2019 and voting will be open for three weeks, until September 23rd. This will give members time to pay their dues, confirm the accuracy of their contact info, and VOTE. Members in good standing will be able to cast their ballots in secret by clicking the “vote” button below this letter. We will announce the results by September 30.
Many thanks to the members of Nominating Committee for their efforts. On behalf of the Board and entire membership of MACDL, I want to thank Lenore Glaser, our departing member of the Board, for all her hard work and commitment to the goals of the organization.
Victoria Kelleher MACDL President
