Texas Region Election of Officers and Directors
Texas Region is now accepting nominations for individuals to serve the Club Members for 2017. Positions that need to be filled are:
Board Members: 3 positions are open, with a possible 4th position open.
Duties: The Board of Directors establishes policies, procedures and budgets for the Region operations and provides direction and support to the Officers in the implementation of the Region’s goals and objectives.
Qualifications: Nominees must be a member of Texas Region and have been a Texas Region member continuously for the two previous years.
Officers: Officers are elected annually, including the Regional Executive, Secretary, and Treasurer.
Duties: The RE performs those duties ordinarily pertaining to a Chief Executive Officer or President and is responsible for organizing and coordinating all aspects of Texas Region activities. The Secretary records minutes of all Region meetings, maintains a roster of Region members, and conducts Region correspondence as required. The Treasurer controls the Regions finances and disbursement of funds as approved by the Board.
Qualifications: Nominees must be a current member of Texas Region, except nominees for RE must have held prior elective office in Texas Region or have served as an Assistant RE.
Nomination: Nominations must be submitted in writing by completion of a Texas Region Nomination Form, which can be found here:
The form must be signed by 10 Region Members and by the Nominee, and delivered to Texas Region’s Secretary, Sitara Wilson, by the close of the monthly Member Meeting to be held on October 10, 2016.
The agenda for the October meeting will include time to “Meet the Candidates”, and candidates will have an opportunity to state their qualifications and reasons why they should receive your vote.
After nominations are closed on 10/10, a list of eligible candidates will be distributed electronically to all Texas Region Members in good standing along with instructions for voting for the candidates. As in previous years voting will be done electronically via the Internet, but written ballots may be requested by contacting the Texas Region Secretary and providing an appropriate mailing address. Results of the election will be announced during the Texas Region Annual Meeting on November 7, 2016.
Texas Region only functions as an organization if and to the extent its Members are willing to volunteer their time and effort to make our Club successful. Please consider helping to ensure that Texas Region continues to be one of the best regions in SCCA, by placing your name in nomination for one of the open positions and working with the membership to promote and facilitate the many programs we offer. We have some exciting plans in development for 2017 but really need your support and involvement to make those plans happen!
If you have any questions about duties, qualifications, or anything else regarding the election please contact one of the current Region Officers or Board Members and let us know how we can encourage your participation.
