It is time once again for the election of TSFA Members to the Association Committee.
Members of the Committee who are retiring are those in the Class of 2012: Patti Hobbs,
Kathy James, and Chris Sackett. Newly elected members will serve for three years, forming
the Class of 2015. The maximum number of Committee members is 12. We will be looking for
up to five new members in this election--four to form the Class of 2015, and one to fill a
vacancy in the Class of 2014.
According to our Constitution, those wishing to run for a seat on the Committee will
submit their names to the Nominating Committee, along with a short biography and statement
of qualifications (not to exceed 250 words and not mandatory). It is also possible to
nominate someone other than yourself, if you have that person's approval. Names and
biographies will be posted on the TSFA Website for members to review. The Nominating
Committee will accept candidates until 15 April 2012, at this email address:
Members may cast their secret votes from 16 April 2012 until 30 April 2012, at an email
address set up for that specific purpose. Results of the voting will be announced in the
first week of May 2012.
Members are elected to a seat on the Association Committee, and not to a specific office.
The Committee, once installed, will elect the following officers among themselves, to
serve in that capacity for one year: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Registrar.
Remaining Committee Members will serve as Members at Large.
Any organization depends on the participation of its members to remain vibrant and
growing. It is important to have new ideas and fresh approaches brought into the mix. You
are encouraged to stand for election as a member of the TSFA Committee. This is an
excellent way for you to help our organization provide the services that you have found
helpful in your genealogical research.
In volunteering to stand for election, please send your replies to the Nominating
Committee email: nominate(a)sackettfamily.info.
