Please contact W8LWX, KM4QPR, or W4TMR immediately if you are willing to serve as Vagabond president next year.  To be considered, you must inform us of your interest by September 30, 2017.

As provided under the bylaws, we have been appointed by KK4ZIU as the Nominating Committee.  It's our job to ensure that there is at least one nominee for each of the elected Vagabond offices at the annual meeting this year.

Two of the current officers, KE4JHJ and KM4OCS, have agreed to stand for reelection, so it is our intention to nominate them for those positions. KK4ZIU, however, will not stand for reelection, so another nominee must be found.

Please note that it is not our job to pick the next Vagabond president! Our job is just to make sure there's at least one nominee.  If we get more than one volunteer, we'll pick one by a method that is yet to be determined, which might include throwing papers down a set of stairs, flipping a coin, or staging feats of strength.  The point is to have a nominee.  If anyone else wants to run, they can also be nominated later, but that's not our job.

If we get to the annual meeting in December without any nominee for president, the Vagabond Ragchew Net will grind to a complete standstill until a nominee is found.  Under the bylaws, the meeting cannot be adjourned, nor can any further nets or other business of any kind be conducted, until that happens.

This is important!  The net doesn't just happen by itself.  It needs a president to guide it along.  If you are a service-minded person willing to take on the job next year, please contact KM4QPR (Jim), W4TMR (Charlie), or me, ASAP.

UPDATE 09/25: The Nominating Committee is aware of only one member thus far (KC8OEX-Terry) who is willing to serve as president next year.  If there are any others, please contact me, KM4QPR-Jim, or W4TMR-Charlie by Sept. 30 in order to be considered by the committee.

The committee will announce its slate of nominees by Nov. 1.  Any other persons wishing to stand for election must be nominated independently (not by the committee) by Nov. 10.

For more information about this process, read the bylaws.  They are posted on this website under "About Us" in the menu bar.

73,
John, W8LWX
Chairman of the Nominating Committee
