Elections Coming Soon!

According to Article VI of the Baldwin Hills Amateur Radio Club's Constitution, nominations for new club officers are to take place at the meeting two months prior to the election meeting. Since we will hold our club elections at the February 2nd, 2000 meeting, nominations are to be completed by the December 1st, 1999 meeting. We would like to open the nominations at the October 6th meeting to give everyone time think and make decisions. Nominations will be accepted at the October, November and December meetings as well as by mail to the club's P.O. Box as long as each nomination is approved and seconded as described in the club's constitution. Nominations submitted by mail will not be accepted if postmarked after November 24th, 1999. The nominations will be made final at the December meeting to give the candidates plenty of time to prepare campaigns for official presentation at the January 5th, 2000 meeting. New officers will be placed into office at the February election meeting for a term of one year. Please see Article VI; paragraph 4 of the club's constitution for details on absentee ballots. Copies of the constitution may be obtained from the club's Secretary at the next regular meeting or by mail to the club's P.O. Box (include 8-1/2 x 11 SASE).
