NWSEO 2012 Elections – List of Delegates and Votes per Branch
Results as of November 5, 2012 posted below
(October 19, 2012) The 2012 NWSEO Elections will take place at the NWSEO National Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada on November 13 and 14. This is a Tuesday-Wednesday convention.
This year, we are posting on www.nwseo.org the names of the delegates from each branch who will attend the convention and vote on the issues and candidates that are placed on the agenda for the convention. This includes this year’s election of NWSEO Regional Chairs and Vice Chairs.
A delegate holds one vote for each NWSEO member in the branch represented. On the lists below, you will see the number of votes available at the branch the delegate represents. Please keep in mind that the delegate may not cast all of the available votes because any NWSEO member who attends is entitled to cast their own vote (thus reducing the number of votes that the delegate will cast).
In the case that the Delegate cannot attend the convention, the Alternate Delegate will cast the designated votes for the branch.
These preliminary results are subject to the NWSEO members in attendance at the NWSEO Convention. Each Region’s page will be updated weekly as the votes for Delegate are certified by the NWSEO Elections Credentials Committee.
The annual convention is open to all NWSEO members. You are encouraged to attend, participate in discussions and vote. If you attend the convention and are not a delegate you will cast your own vote and the delegate for your branch will have one less vote to cast on behalf of your branch. For more information on the NWSEO elections and the National Convention, please read the Elections Letter.
Challenges to the information posted on the NWSEO website may be submitted, along with evidence to Scott Prosise at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than close of business on Thursday, November 08, 2012. This review and challenge period provides the Credentials Committee time to investigate any challenge or irregularity before the National NWSEO Convention, to ascertain facts and additional evidence, and to take whatever appropriate corrective action in advance of the convention.
