While it’s not officially Fall yet, it is definitely Election Season. Elections for the PASS Board of Directors opens up on September 17, 2015. Campaigning starts today with the announcement of the Official Slate of Candidates.
It’s a great slate and it will be hard to choose. I appreciate all the hard work the NomCom has done to provide us with such a great list of candidates. Please take the time to read each candidate’s application. This is the first year the NomCom scores have been made public. Members of the NomCom spend countless hours researching, interviewing and agonizing over how the scores are reached, so pay attention to them.
PASS has also come up with some community events for you to get to know your candidates. Take advantage of them to help you make your decision.
This is your community. Do your research then cast your vote. This is your opportunity to make a difference.
Did you know that it’s election season for PASS? Did you know that you can pose questions to the potential candidates via the Election Forums? The NomCom is busy interviewing candidates and is offering you the opportunity to ask the candidates question, via the NomCom. Do you have a question burning a hole in the back of your mind? You can ask anything from platform related issues to who their favorite sporting team is and just about anything in between.
This is your community, get involved.
I submitted my application for the NomCom last week and the polls opened up yesterday. I’ve seen an amazing amount of support not only from friends and co-workers, but also members of the community that I’ve never met. That is what PASS is all about. A community that encourages and helps others without ever having met someone and asking nothing in return. I know I made the right decision to run for NomCom. Have you voted yet? If not, get out there and vote, your vote does count. Read through the candidates qualifications and their applications and make your decision based on the that. Good luck to all the candidates!
