2018 NDC Trustees election results
Just in case you're wondering how the Trustees election went this year, I received 115 ballots, the results of which are:
Dennis Pitchford 100
Les Pesavento 92
Dan Lyman 85
Regis Bodnar 61
I sent a message to Regis thanking him for running and encouraging him to try again next year, which he said he plans to do.
NDC Election Coordinator
Since some members only received their May-June magazine around August 1 I suspect many members did not get the ballot until after the Due date of July 28,2018.
This has been discussed by several members of a local chapter and they have also noted the lateness of the ballot I do not think this is a fair results since the ballot has been received after the due date.
Current NDC member
I have received two ballots since the deadline, one with a note stating that he hadn't received his copy of the magazine until August. I don't know why some of our members didn't get their magazine until August while others got it in early July. Nor do I know the number of members who didn't get their magazine until August and the number of members who got their magazine in July. I have kept both of the late ballots, and will keep any additional ballots that I receive this month.
This will now be a topic of discussion at the Trustees' Open and Regular meetings at our convention in a couple of weeks.
This time “John” was really Bill Noble. Bill has administrator log-in privileges so that he can post board agendas to the “members only” forum.
Sometimes I don’t realize that I’m logged in as JohnSmith due to cookies logging me in automatically, which I suspect might be the case here for Bill as well.
It's supposed to be fun!
