2013 Mid-Atlantic Alfa Romeo Club Officer Nominations/Elections

2013 Mid-Atlantic Alfa Romeo Club Officer Elections
The By-Laws of the Mid-Atlantic Alfa Romeo Club call for election of chapter officers each year. The past few years, the current officers and board of directors have self-nominated and elected those officers.
Back in the 1980s and 1990s, there was a regular election cycle which began in October with the call for nominations, followed by a posting of members running for office in the November chapter newsletter with a ballot for voting. Due to poor response by the membership, the process was largely abandoned in the late 1990s and 2000s.
Now that we have most of the members online through the Internet, it is practical to return to the original election procedure.
So, with this announcement, the floor is open for nominations for President, Vice-President, Secretary and Treasurer.
Additionally, members who wish to serve on the board in one of the capacities listed in the Alfa Advocate should indicate their willingness to serve. Those unelected positions have been selected by the elected officials, and include:
1.       Area Representatives for Charlotte, Asheville, Triad, Triangle and Hampton/Norfolk/Va Beach.
2.       Membership
3.       Webmaster
4.       Newsletter Editor
5.       Quartermaster
6.       Special Events
7.       Chief Scrutineer
8.       Chapter Historian
9.       Tech Guy
Please make sure that the person you nominate agrees to run for the office. And please provide a brief biography introducing the nominee. The cutoff for nominations will be November 10th. The ballot will be sent out electronically with a place to indicate your vote for each position. Voting results will be announced at the December Holiday Party. Votes will be verified by Delloite Vote Validation, Inc.  (just kidding).
All those interested in serving in a non-elected role should advise the newly elected officers.
