Members of TPCH will elect 2019-2020 committee chairs in April and elect or reelect 2019-2020 Board members in May. Here’s what to do.
Committees. Nominate committee chairs and vice chairs at committee meetings in March. Elect the new officers in April for one-year terms to begin July 1; then announce election results at the May 9 General Council Annual Meeting.
Board of Directors. Any voting member may nominate a candidate to the Board slate by submitting the candidate’s name to the Treasurer (Linda Kot, firstname.lastname@example.org) and the Governance & Planning (G&P) Committee chair (Steven Nelson, email@example.com) by March 31. The G&P Committee recommends the slate to the General Council.
TPCH’s voting membership then elect or re-elect directors (if a director is eligible to be re-elected) at the May 9 annual meeting. The 2019-2020 Board elects a Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer for one-year terms from among all directors at their first meeting (in July).
