FSC BMW CCA ANNUAL ELECTIONS PROCESS

Nominations for the Chapter’s 2018 Executive Officers and Directors open Sunday, December 17, 2017 will close on Thursday, December 21, 2017, by action of the Chapter Board of Directors (BOD).

Nominations for the various offices may be made at a Chapter’s business meeting, or made in writing by Chapter members, who are not running for any of the offices in question. Written nominations should be submitted both to the current President and Treasurer. At either instance, a member-nominee put forth at a business meeting or in a written document, must be a Chapter member in good standing, have consented to his/her name being put forth by stating that he/she will actively serve in that office if elected.

The Chapter By-Laws, and its nomination provisions, do not provide for write-in candidates for office.

The current BOD, by resolution, decided that the election ballots will be cast electronically by members via the MotorsportReg.comsite, and that electronic voting for candidates will open on Friday, December 22, 2017 at 12:01 PM, and close on Tuesday, January 16, 2017 at 11:59 PM. The decision to use this procedure was made by a By-Law provision, which allows the BOD to determine the balloting form and process. Complete information for voting will be provided active and associate members, both at our regular north and south business meetings, and by email. There is NO FEE to vote.

A complete ballot for the various offices will be provided on MotorsportsReg.com for members to affirm their individual votes for candidates. Separately on that web site, your name and membership number will be recorded for ballot validation.
