Election Season is Here—Get Ready to Cast Your Vote

by Mike McLaughlin, SOA President, 2009-2010

McLaughlinElection time is just around the corner, and the SOA has announced the candidates for the 2010 Board of Directors elections. I thank the Nominating Committee for its work in developing the 2010 ballot.

We have a strong group of candidates this year, with qualifications that are impressive! To learn more about the process for selecting the candidates, read Pete Hepokoski’s recent blog post on the topic.

Voting will open on August 9 and close on September 3. The SOA will communicate regularly with members regarding the elections throughout this time period.

As in years past, we will provide a number of ways for you to get to know the President-Elect candidates. The candidates’ bios will be posted on the SOA website in the coming days, and videos of each President-Elect candidate, as well as a roundtable discussion with the candidates, will be posted online to help you make an informed decision.

In addition, there will be a separate ballot for section council positions. Each of the section council candidates will provide his or her biography with professional background, SOA activities, relevant experience and the answer to a section-related question.

I strongly encourage each of you to take part in the upcoming election.

Sharing is caring.
