Election Results

Voting is closed and the new Board of Directors is:

Jason Ruff – President
Tim Hamilton (current cadre member) – Vice President
Paul Hesco – Treasurer
Barry Gasdek
Amy Henry
Eric Magnuson (current cadre member)
Cale Jenson (current cadre member)

Amy and Cale still need to pay membership dues but the bylaws allow a board to function with less than seven members so there will be no delay to the transition while that is resolved.

New Board of Directors

I hope you are all having a Merry Christmas.

Jason Ruff has volunteered to take charge of the CBAA. I think the easiest thing to do is hold an election and then I’ll hand everything off. Between Jason and I we have put together the following list of people to serve on the board.

Jason Ruff – President
Tim Hamilton (current cadre member) – Vice President
Paul Hesco – Treasurer
Barry Gasdek
Amy Henry
Eric Magnuson (current cadre member)
Cale Jenson (current cadre member)

Since we haven’t had an election for a while I’ll go over the rules. Under the bylaws must provide 30 days notice prior to any vote. The winners will be determined based on a simple majority of those who vote.

So we’ll start the voting today (12/25/16) and it will close on 1/24/17. Amy, Time, Eric, and Cale are currently not members of the CBAA but as long as they pay their dues before the election closes all will be well.

To vote, just reply to this email. All replies will come to me. You can vote yes on the whole list, no on the whole list, or send me a modified list. If you modify the list then the top seven candidates will be on the board.

Nominations and Elections

Next Monday we will hold our Annual Elections. We two seats (DC Faber and Joseph Huss) coming open on the board of directors. I haven’t spoken to these men yet to see if they are running again.

In any case, this is the week for nominations. If you can or know of anybody who can serve on the board of directors and wants to serve let me know, or any other board member before 9AM next Monday (June 23rd).

Next week we will open the voting which will run up until our next meeting which will likely be in the second week of July.

We are starting to explore options to allow people to remotely participate in meetings and will try to test them at this next meeting. This opens the door for those of you who don’t live in Laramie to not only be a bigger part of things but also allow some of you to serve on the board.
