AMSAT are calling from submissions of nominations for the upcoming AMSAT-NA Board of Directors election.
Three directors' terms expire this year: those of Tom Clark, K3IO; Mark Hammond, N8MH; and Bruce Paige, KK5DO. In addition, up to two Alternates may be elected for one-year terms.
A valid nomination requires either one Member Society or five current individual members in good standing to nominate an AMSAT-NA member for Director. Written nominations, consisting of the nominee's name and call, and the nominating individuals' names, calls and individual signatures should be mailed to:
10605 CONCORD ST STE 304
KENSINGTON MD 20895-2526
In addition to traditional submissions of written nominations, which is the preferred method, the intent to nominate someone may be made by electronic means. These include e-mail, fax, or electronic image of a petition. Electronic petitions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to +1-301-822-4371.
No matter what means is used, petitions MUST arrive at the AMSAT-NA office no later than 15th June 2018. If the nomination is a traditionally written nomination, no other action is required. If electronic means are used, a verifying traditional written petition MUST be received at the AMSAT-NA office within 7 days following the close of nominations on 15th June 2018.
ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS WITHOUT THIS SECOND, WRITTEN VERIFICATION ARE NOT VALID UNDER THE EXISTING AMSAT-NA BYLAWS.
