  • ANIA Ohio Chapter Elections

    It is election time!

    We are taking nominations for the following offices:

    • President-elect (1 year- become President next year)
    • Secretary (2 year Position)

     

    If you are interested, please send me an email with the nomination.  If you are nominating yourself (which is great), please include a bio and a picture (optional) which will be posted on the website/email. I have uploaded the officer duties section from the chapter manual to the library files.

     

    Elections

    • Nov1 – Nov 15 – call for nominations for president-elect and secretary
    • Nov 20 – 30 – Voting per Survey Monkey
    • Dec – first week – final business meeting of the year – will announce d/t ASAP
    • January 1 – new officers 

     

    Elections Policy

    Any chapter member who is a full member (not student or honorary) of ANIA may be a candidate for any office of that chapter. It is strongly recommended for a candidate to be an ANIA member 1 year prior to running for chapter office. Full members of ANIA in that chapter are qualified to vote for chapter officers. Chapters will hold annual elections for chapter offices of President, President-Elect, Secretary, and Treasurer (or Secretary/Treasurer) each calendar year. In order to maintain stability, it is recommended that the positions be staggered so that the entire chapter leadership does not change in a single year.

     

     

    Additionally – as an output from the meeting, there was interest shown in a social media committee, events committee, and educational committee (with CEUs).  If you are interested in helping with any of these, please let me know. Any other suggestions/comments etc. welcome J
