Volunteer or Suggest Neighbors for the Upcoming FAN Nominating Committee

The 2016 Friends of Austin Neighborhoods annual meeting will take place in June. During the meeting, the membership will elect officers (President, Treasurer, Secretary) to the board.

As required in the by-laws, the Assembly of Delegates representing FAN member neighborhood associations) will appoint a committee that will nominate candidates for that June election.

With this message, we are officially convening an electronic meeting during which delegates to FAN member neighborhood associations may volunteer to serve on the nominating committee or suggest other delegates to serve on the nominating committee.

Please reply in this thread if you are interested in serving on the nominating committee for the upcoming FAN board election.

We’re conducting this electronic “meeting” here in the FAN forum for openness and transparency, as we strive to do in as many situations as possible.

Wednesday, we will prepare and send a ballot with a proposed nominating committee, and the membership will vote whether to accept the committee members.

Starting Wednesday and ending 4 pm today, delegates to member neighborhood associations and at-large individual members participated in an online vote to accept the volunteers for the committee. The vote and the online meeting is hereby adjourned.

By a near unanimous vote of the members who participated, the three volunteers are accepted.

Accordingly, the members of the nominating committee are:
