It’s time to nominate candidates for the upcoming AMSAT-NA Board of Directors election. Four directors’ terms expire this year — Barry Baines, WD4ASW; Jerry Buxton, N0JY; Drew Glasbrenner, KO4MA, and Bob McGwier, N4HY. In addition, up to two Alternates may be elected for 1-year terms.
A valid nomination requires either one member society or five current members in good standing to nominate an AMSAT-NA member for Director.
Mail written nominations, consisting of the nominee’s name and call sign, and the nominating individual’s names, call signs, and individual signatures to AMSAT-NA, 10605 Concord St #304, Kensington, MD 20895-2526.
Submitting written nominations by mail is the preferred method, but notice of intent to nominate an AMSAT member may be delivered by electronic means — e-mail, fax, or electronic image of a petition. E-mail electronic petitions to email@example.com or fax them to (301)822-4371. Petitions must arrive no later than June 15, 2017, at the AMSAT-NA office.
Anything other than a traditional written petition must be backed up by a verifying written petition, received at the AMSAT-NA office within 7 days of the June 15 close of nominations. Solely electronic submissions are invalid under AMSAT-NA bylaws. — Thanks to AMSAT News Service via Paul Stoetzer, N8HM
