Call for Nominations

For the Board of Officers for the Beta Delta Chapter of Beta Phi Mu

As per Article X of the Beta Delta Chapter Bylaws, it is time to call for nominations for elected offices on the Chapter’s Board of Officers. Article X states:

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. Because of a change to a calendar fiscal year, we did not hold elections in 2015, so if at all possible, at least one director should be nominated from the most recent 2 classes of inductees (2014 and 2015).

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. An email link to the electronic ballot will be provided. I am attaching a list of the position descriptions for your reference.

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”. 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. 🙂

A brief bio should accompany the e-mail message containing the nomination.  If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else, please send an e-mail message with that information to blb@buffalo.edu by the Sept. 22nd  deadline.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Brenda at the email provided.
