Deadline for AMSAT-NA Board of Directors nomination is June15th



All,

A reminder that the deadline for submission of nominations is Wednesday,
June 15th.  Tick Tock!  If you wish to serve, or you know someone you think
should serve, now is your chance.  It requires only 5 members, or one member
society, to nominate.  New this year, to accommodate last minute nominations
to the maximum extent our existing bylaws permit, an electronic option now
exists.  Please see the details in the announcement below from the ANS, or
on the WWW.AMSAT.ORG web site.

Alan Biddle
WA4SCA
AMSAT Corporate Secretary

========================================

It is time to submit nominations for the upcoming open seats on the 
AMSAT-NA Board of Directors. The deadline is June 15th. A valid nom-
ination requires either one Member Society, or five current individual 
members in good standing, to nominate an AMSAT member for the position. 

Four director's terms expire this year:

Barry Baines, WD4ASW
Alan Biddle, WA4SCA
Drew Glasbrenner, KO4MA
Tony Monteiro, AA2TX

The four candidates receiving the highest number of votes will be 
seated as full Board members for two year terms.  The two candidates 
receiving the next highest number of votes will be seated as alternate 
Board members for one year terms.

Beginning this year, in addition to traditional submissions of written
nominations which remains unchanged and is the preferred method, initial
nominations may be made by electronic means.=A0 These include e-mail, 
FAX, or electronic image of a petition. Electronic petitions should be 
sent to MARTHA@AMSAT.ORG or faxed to 301-608-3410. Written nominations, 
consisting of names, calls, and individual signatures, should be mailed 
to:

AMSAT-NA
850 Sligo Ave #600
Silver Spring, MD, 20910

No matter what method is used, petitions MUST arrive no later than 
June 15th at the AMSAT-NA office. If the nomination is a traditional 
written nomination, no other action is required. If it is other than 
this, i.e. electronic, a verifying traditional written petition MUST 
be received at the AMSAT-NA office at the above address within 7 days 
following the close of nominations on June 15th. ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS 
WITHOUT THIS SECOND, WRITTEN VERIFICATION ARE NOT VALID UNDER THE EXIST-
ING AMSAT-NA BYLAWS.
