I am delighted to announce that your ROSNF Board has unanimously supported the selection of PDG Guz Goh as your ROSNF Chair-Elect 2014-15, to take office as ROSNF Chair 2015-16. Guz was the sole nominee when nominations for the position closed earlier this month.
As a consequence of Guz’ selection, I have appointed him as a ROSNF Director with immediate effect for the remainder of the current Rotary year.
Congratulations PDG Guz! #ROSNF will be in excellent hands in 2015-16.
In his capacity as ROSNF Elections Chair for this cycle, the selection of Chair-Elect for 2014-2015 to serve as ROSNF Chair in the 2015-2016 Rotary Year, Mel Powell reports that the seven-day nominations period has concluded.
One candidate has accepted a nomination to serve. Under Section 2a of our Bylaws pertaining to elections, when there is one candidate, the Board then announces to the Membership the name of that candidate, and that pursuant to the Bylaws we now re-open the nominations for an additional 72 hours. The list of candidates eligible to be nominated is here: http://rosnf.net/2014/05/eligible-candidates-may-2014-chair-elect-ballot/ .
The following email was sent to ROSNF members at 7.30am Aust WST on 8 May 2014:
Dear ROSNF Members,
Our Fellowship’s Bylaws call for the election of a Chair-Elect in May, to serve as Chair beginning the following 1 July 14 months later. Nominations for Chair-Elect will open in 24 hours, and any ROSNF Member may nominate an eligible candidate.
To be eligible for nomination as ROSNF Chair-Elect for 2014-2015, to serve as Chair for 2015-2016, a Rotarian Member of ROSNF must have served one full year on the Board of ROSNF as of 30 June 2014 (it is presumed for purposes of nomination that a current Board Member will complete this Rotary Year as a Board Member), and must have served on the Board no further in the past than three Rotary Years (during 2011-2012 or later). The list of candidates eligible to be nominated is here: http://rosnf.net/2014/05/eligible-candidates-may-2014-chair-elect-ballot/
(Mel Powell is eligible but, serving as Elections Chair, may not be nominated.)
If you wish to nominate one of the above eligible candidates, please send an e-mail nominating one person to the nominations email address (it’s in the email sent to members & can also be accessed in our Members-only group).
Nominations will open in 24 hours and remain open for 7 days, after which time no further candidates may be nominated.
The election will be held during the week following the close of nominations. You may read the Bylaws for information on the elections process by visiting the “About” page on the website. Thank you for your participation in this election process, and for your continuing participation in our Rotarians on Social Networks Fellowship.
Rotarians on Social Networks Fellowship offered a place in the draw for a #ROSNF pin as an incentive for members to share our Facebook page cover announcing the opening of the ROSNF online store. I am pleased to announce that the winner of the pin is member Jim Goit.
Thank you to those who voted in this month’s poll re the change to our Bylaws concerning the election of our Chair-Elect. You have given overwhelming endorsement to the proposal. Our Rotarians on Social Networks Fellowship Bylaws have been amended to reflect your decision.
As a consequence of your decision, we will be calling for nominations for Chair-Elect in May 2014.
