Title: July 15th, Elections for Chair of the Music Scholarship Committee
Post by: Jena on July 11, 2010, 09:07:57 am
Last September, Desiree and I were chosen as interim co-chairs of the music scholarship committee.  With only six others present at the committee meeting, it was a small group who elected us to this position.  Everyone seemed satisfied with our performance, so it wasn't a major issue.  After Desiree stepped down, I have remained chair of this committee, but without any clearcut definition of how or when my successor is to be chosen.

I believe the best time to transition is now, since we have at least six months before the benefit concert, and elections are the most fair method I can see of making the transition.  My time as chair will end on July 16th.

Anyone who wishes to become chair of this committee can nominate him or herself on this thread.  If you want to nominate someone other than yourself, that's fine, assuming they accept the nomination.  So to be clear, we need all interested nominees to say so on this thread by the night of Wednesday, July 14th.

Around midnight on Wednesday night, I'll set up a poll with all the nominees, and we will have 24 hours to choose a new chair.

Once the new chair takes over, that person can decide whether there should be one chair, or co-chairs, but I want to keep this election process as simple as possible.

I would really love it if we could have as many backups as possible choosing our next chair for the scholarship committee.  So even if you're not particularly interested in the workings of the scholarship, please vote, and choose the person you believe will be most efficient at helping us to achieve our dreams.

I thank you all for the support you've given me in my time as chair of the scholarship committee.

Gem mentioned that she didn't see this on the Announcements board, so I've moved it to the main board temporarily.  I'll move the topic to the Scholarship section, once the election is over.  I just want to b sure everyone sees it.
