Run for the USKBTC Board of Governors
Are you interested in doing more on behalf of the Kerry Blue?
Then you should consider running for a position on the USKBTC Board of Governors.
How can you run for a position on the Board?
You must be a member in good standing and a resident of the United States. You also have to commit to attending at least two meetings a year, one of which is held during Montgomery County Weekend and the other is usually at the Traveling Specialty. Plus, you must be able to participate in online discussions.
(Editor’s Note: The current Board members attend many more than two meetings a year in an effort to accomplish all that needs to be done.)
Who should you contact if you would like to volunteer your services?
Please contact Linda Olsen, Nominating Committee Chairman, if you are interested in speaking with the Nominating Committee.
If not selected by the Nominating Committee, for the current slate of officers, how can you still run for the Board?
If you wish to run independently, then eligible members must submit a written petition addressed to the Corresponding Secretary and it must be received at the Secretary’s regular address on or before July 15th.
The written petition must be signed by three members the USKBTC, none of whom may be the spouse or a member of the immediate family of the nominee. The petition must be accompannied by the written acceptance of each such additional nominee signifying his or her willingness to be a candidate.
After all of that, the membership has the final vote, unless candidates run unopposed.
Please consider running for the Board. We look forward to hearing from you.
Regardless of when this original post was made, the club always needs hard working volunteers to help with the club’s many projects So this is an ongoing request.
