Nominations for the officers and three directors shall be made by a committee appointed by the president. Additional nominations may be made from the floor prior to the election. One director shall be nominated and elected from among the newly inducted members at the time of election.

The Nominations Committee is presently composed of the current Board and all positions on the Board are up for election.  Those positions include: President, Vice-President/President-elect, Secretary/Treasurer and four Directors. If at all possible, at least one director should be nominated from the most recent 2 classes of inductees (2015 and 2016).

In view of the above, nominations will accepted until Fri., Sept. 22, 2017 at 5:00 PM Eastern  The names of the individuals nominated for office will then be distributed with any statements by the candidates via the Chapter’s listserv.  The election will take place, via online ballot, from Wed.

The Nominations Committee is looking for a few good officers to lead the Chapter and “set the bar high”. Therefore, please consider nominating yourself or someone else to run for one of our chapter offices.  Please ensure the person you are nominating WANTS to be nominated. 🙂

2016-2017 Executive Board

Congratulations to the 2016-2017 Beta Delta Executive Board!  Many of the board are returning for their third year.  The returning board is thrilled to welcome Sara Brown as a Director.

Sara is a 2015 graduate and recent BPM inductee now working as a librarian with the Baltimore County Public Library. There, she focuses on outreach and programming and is especially interested in public libraries as non-commercial community gathering spaces. She is enthusiastic about our chapter’s potential and would love to be a part of helping us serve our members and the profession!

For those who considered running in 2016 but demurred, please do consider a run again in 2017.  This organization is only viable so long as members take an active service interest.

In view of the above, nominations will accepted until Thursday, Sept. 22, 2016 at 5:00 PM Eastern  The names of the individuals nominated for office will then be distributed with any statements by the candidates via the Chapter’s Listserv.  The election will take place, via online ballot, from Sept. 26, 2016 through Oct. 10, 2016 at 5:00pm.

Given our recent survey of the membership and the valuable feedback you have provided, the Beta Delta Chapter of Beta Phi Mu is looking to accomplish a great deal in the coming year. The NominationsCommittee is looking for a few good officers to lead the Chapter and “set the bar high”.
