If you have not done so already, please be sure to vote by no later than Tuesday, May 31, at 11:00 p.m. If you are currently an STC/SM member but have not received an email from Election Buddy with a link to an election ballot, please send me an email so that we can address any problems and secure a ballot for you before the election closes.

STC/SM Officer Nominations Update: May 6

by Tom Glennan, Immediate Past President, Nominations Committee Chairperson

The election of STC/SM chapter officers for the 2016/2017 program year will be underway soon, but we still have no nominations for the office of chapter secretary. We are also seeking candidates to fill the two elected (but non-officer) nominating committee member positions which are up for election each year. It is urgent that we find candidates to fill these positions to ensure the ongoing leadership for moving our chapter forward.

STC/SM Officer Nominations Update

by Tom Glennan Immediate STC/SM Past President

Nominations are still open for the upcoming election of STC/SM officers for the July 2016 – June 2017 program year. Since my last posting, our current treasurer, Maryann Bowen, has agreed to run again for that position, and our current secretary, Alison Phillips, has agreed to run for the position of vice president. With current vice-president Sharon McDonnell set to assume the post of president, the position of secretary is the only council seat remaining without a nomination. So one or more candidates for this council position are still being sought, and additional candidates for the other council seats are still welcome as well (the more, the merrier, as they say).

The chapter officer elections will be opened in the next few weeks, so please watch for the announcement and be sure to vote for the candidate of your choice. And if you have a chapter member in mind that you think would make a great officer (and that can include yourself!), we encourage you to send your ideas or any questions to nominations@stc-sm.org. Please note that candidates must be chapter members.

Website Hiccups

You will undoubtedly notice that there are missing pictures on this website, as well as a serious problem with the comments form.

The site had a major problem yesterday that exposed a hole in our redundant backups: the photos folder was not getting backed up. These problems will be worked, and I hope, fixed over the next week or two, so please bear with us.
