It is now official! Check:
Thank you guys!
Well, here we are, Saturday morning, 7:13 AM, and while I wait for my flight to leave, I want to write about the nominations period. It went great: I got a few emails, which I forwarded to all of the members of the Chapter!
In this post, a poll is present for members to vote on the officers:
The poll expires in a week!
In the effort of creating our Board of Directives, I have decided to publish the names of the current members of the Chapter. This is just the first step.
I believe, that as the organizer of the Chapter, it is my responsibility to think about how to get this done. This is the current list of members (alphabetically):
- Dr. Christopher Paolini.
- Eduardo Sanchez (myself) – Student Organizer.
- Johnny Corbino.
- Jonathan Matthews.
- Dr. Jose Castillo – Faculty Adviser.
- Joshua Staker.
- Julia Rossi.
- Martin Kandes.
- Omair Zubairi.
- Dr. Peter Blomgren.
- Dr. Ricardo Carretero.
- Trevor Hawkins.
This is what I think we should do: A Nominating Committee should be created, by the will of their future members; i.e., raise your hand whoever wants to propose candidates! :)
- A Chapter President.
- A Chapter Vice-President.
- A Chapter Secretary.
- A Chapter Treasurer.
The function of each role are described in the official Rules of Proceeding (ROP) document, available here [PDF, 30 KiB].
Once candidates for each position have been proposed, then elections will be held through a poll, and then those members will be officially named officers of the Chapter.
Comment out on this post, or email me, if you are ready to nominate a candidate.
