Every year on or about September 1st, your Board of Directors begins a search for new Board Candidates. Remember, this is your club. It runs on people power. It does not run itself. Things don’t just happen. If you have enjoyed what the club offers and feel like participating in Team Alameda at the next level, consider responding to this Call for Candidates by expressing your interest.
The Call for Candidates is now open and will run until September 30, 2015. The election of Directors will take place between October 21 - 27, with results being posted on our website on October 31, 2015.
This year we have seven (7) Directors whose terms are expiring, and we need new candidates to replace those leaving. There are three current Board members who desire to serve another two year term - Shel Milligan, Rick McLeod & Joe Mariscal - which leaves us with four seats to fill. Should we have more candidates than seats, we will conduct on-line voting in October (details to follow).
Some things to know about the Director positions:
- Director terms are two years
- Directors are elected to the Board, but not for a specific position
- Your skill sets and desires will determine your Board duties
- The new Board elects four officers each year at their meeting in January - President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer
If you are interested in serving on YOUR Team Alameda Board of Directors, please contact Rick McLeod and/or Joe Mariscal. Please contact us even if you have previously expressed an interest since we need to confirm official candidates this month. One of us will get back to you to discuss in greater detail your interest and what time commitments you should expect. If you would like more information about board activities and position descriptions, visit the member-only section of the website (you must log in). There you will find the bylaws, some position descriptions, and monthly meeting minutes, among other things.
Note: If you aren't interested in becoming a Board member, but would like to help with club activities, please use this as your opportunity to express that interest as well. We are always looking for volunteers to service on committees and at events.
