AGENDA: BOARD DECISION ON VOTING PROCEDURE MATTERS IN RELATION TO THE ELECTION OF 2007 STC OFFICERS
Your STC Board of Directors met to discuss the process it needed to follow related to the total uncontested proposed slate of officers for 2007. The slate was presented by the 2007 slate chairman, Frank Farrell, during the October 11th Membership Meeting. No nominations from the floor were offered at that same meeting.
Thus, in accordance with the STC bylaws and Robert’s Rules of Order and so as to save time and effort involved, the STC Board has decided that no absentee ballots nor paper ballots at the November 8th Membership Meeting will be necessary. A “viva-voce” vote (voice vote on the spot) on the slate of officers will occur at that same November meeting. The two present STC officers, who also are included on that slate, abstained from this decision due to a possible conflict of interests and the remaining three officers unanimously voted to proceed in this manner.
Meeting adjourned at 1: 40 pm. Respectfully submitted. Marje Valenti, STC Secretary
