Applications must be received on or before Friday, January 4, 2019 to be considered. Throughout January 2019, the Nominations & Governance Committee will be reviewing all applications received, and personal phone or in-person interviews will be conducted. After all interviews are administered, the committee will create a slate of candidates. Around February 1, 2019, the slate will be emailed to the membership and will be posted to the chapter website.

 

Additional nominations from the membership shall be permitted if a minimum of ten (10) percent* of the membership have signed a petition to submit each additional nomination to the membership, provided such petitions are received by MPI Potomac within two (2) weeks from the original announcement. Petitions for additional nominations must be for a specific seat or office and must reflect the individual being challenged. A member must have applied for the position for which they are petitioning. The petition form must include a printed name, signature and membership number. Each petition must be supported by written notice from the additional nominees of their availability and willingness to serve, as well as a photograph and resume.

 

If less than ten (10) percent* of the membership contests the slate, the proposed slate shall be confirmed. If more than ten (10) percent* of the membership contests the slate, we will conduct an election for all contested positions. If a position is contested, the individuals running for the contested position shall be fairly presented to the membership through an electronic distribution with qualifications of both parties represented. The membership shall then respond to the ballot. The winner shall be the person receiving the most votes cast. Assuming no position is contested, the submitted slate shall officially be elected. The final and binding list of elected chapter officials will be sent to MPI headquarters by March 1, 2019. Newly elected officers and directors shall be installed at the next annual meeting following the election.

 

*Percentage will be calculated based upon the total number of members of the Potomac Chapter as of January 31, 2019.
