Representatives from MEMBER organizations (with dues paid current) are eligible to serve on the Board of Directors. The term of service is two years and runs July 1, 20xx - June 30, 20yy. As terms of service are staggered on the Board of Directors, elections are held each spring at PESC's Annual Membership Meeting at which half of the Board is elected each year (total number of seats elected is 12).
The Proxy Ballot to the right allows Members, who may not be able to attend the election in-person, the ability to cast a vote now. NOTE: If attending the 16th Annual Membership Meeting in person, Proxy Ballots can still be submitted now and can then either be replaced with an in-person vote on Thursday May 1, 2014 or remain as the official vote. We recommend that every member organization submit a Proxy Ballot so that if any last minute emergencies occur (bad weather, flight or meeting delays, etc.), an official ballot is still on file for that member organization.
Those nominees appearing on the ballot will have five minutes each to address the Members immediately prior to voting at the Membership Meeting. Nominees, who may want to introduce themselves sooner as they may not be as familiar with the PESC Membership or who wish to communicate with Members over the coming weeks, can submit no more than two communications (emails, letters, etc.) to the PESC office. In turn the PESC office will issue that nominee's communication(s) to the PESC Members over the PESC Member listserve. Nominees are still able to communicate directly and independently with voting members outside of this process.
Note that PESC does not accept 'write-in' candidates. Instead and due to specific bylaw requirements, a slate of nominees is presented from which Members vote. Bylaws require that two members of the Board of Directors be from commercial organizations, two members be from higher education associations representing institutions, and two members be from other non-profit associations. These representation requirements are satisfied with our current Board (those not being elected at this time) so the six (6) nominees receiving the highest votes overall will be elected.
