Call for Nominations
Each year, Dragonflight holds an election to fill one or more seats on our
Board of Directors whose terms will expire at the end of the year. This year we seek nominations to fill two seats. Members will cast ballots at our convention, held this year August 9-11, 2013.
Any member of Dragonflight may submit a nomination.
Duties of a Director
Dragonflight's Board of Directors oversees the organization, appointing
and directing Officers of the corporation who in turn perform the
day-to-day duties. Individual Directors must attend all Board meetings
(currently scheduled quarterly) and assist in this process. Each Director
must remain a member of Dragonflight for the entire term of his or her service.
Failure to meet these responsibilities may subject the Director to removal
from office as provided for
in Dragonflight's bylaws.
Term of Service
Each term is three years, beginning January 1 of the calendar year
following the election. The positions expiring at the end of this year are
currently held by Laura Mortensen (position 1) and Ken Cassady (position 2). The new full terms will run from January 1,
2014 through December 31, 2016. As position 1 is currently held by an interim appointee, the individual elected to that position will begin their term immediately upon certification of the election by the present Board.
Any member of Dragonflight may make a nomination. A nominee must be at
least eighteen years of age, and eligible for membership in Dragonflight.
The member must clearly state his or her identity. Nominations from non-members
or which do not clearly identify the member will be discarded. You may
make more than one nomination, provided each is made separately. Please indicate which position each nomination is for. You may
submit your nomination by:

Nominations must be received no later than 5 p.m., Wednesday, 31 July 2013.
The Election Officer will contact each eligible nominee to verify their
desire to stand for election. Nominees who are not eligible to serve or
who decline nomination not appear on the ballot. If the election officer
is unable to contact a nominee, he or she will refer back to the person who made
the nomination for assistance. In the event a nominee cannot be reached
for confirmation before 8 August 2013, that nominee will not be included
on the ballot.
While non-Dragonflight members are eligible for nomination, Dragonflight
bylaws require all Directors to be members in good standing of the
organization. A non-member who is elected to the board must become a
member prior to the first day of his or her term.
