PASS Connector Editorial for October 7- by Andy Warren

Meet the PASS Board Candidates

Just one topic this week – elections! If you haven’t seen the announcement already, we’ve posted the slate of candidates for the 2009 PASS Board of Directors election. Here are the four candidates running for the three available seats:

You can read details about each candidate as well as how the elections process works. Our nomination committee was led by Immediate Past President Kevin Kline and consisted of Judy Christianson (Executive Director), Rushabh Mehta (VP Finance), Allen Kinsel, and Brian Knight. They reviewed 11 applications, interviewed seven nominees, and selected the final four candidates to compete for three vacant seats on the Board of Directors for the 2010-2011 term.
If you were a member of PASS before May 2009, you should have received an email from PASS asking you to complete a qualification survey as a pre-requisite to voting this year.You can also vote if you registered for PASS Summit 2009 by October 8. Voting will run October 14-20, with eligible voters receivinge a link to their 2009 ballot. 

Winners will be announced before PASS Summit this year, leveling the playing field for those unable to attend and campaign and giving the Board time to work with the new members to ensure a smooth transition in January.

Please take the time to research the candidates, read their blogs, and vote carefully for the three best candidates  to represent you on the Board.
