Howdy folks!

Just a reminder to all MUUG members that the nominations deadline is fast
approaching.  If you want to be nominated, or nominate someone else, you
need to let us know by September 24.  Please follow the procedure outlined
below, and make sure you provide us with all the information we need.

Since the announcement below appeared in the September MUUG Lines
newsletter, we've only received confirmation of one additional nomination,
which is that of Shawn Wallbridge.  Now, I know we had a couple more people
come forward at the meeting, but we need to have a formal nomination in
writing.  So, please do so ASAP.



MUUG Board Elections - Call for Nominations

It's been quite some time since we've made a formal call for
nominations, but it's long overdue.  After adopting the MUUG by-laws
in 1992, a formal election was held.  The following two years, a call
for nominations went out, but the end result was a board elected by
acclamation.  The records for the years that follow aren't clear, but
it would appear that the same board members have stood by acclamation
for quite some time.

With the proposed amendments to the by-laws, on their 10th anniversary,
we thought it appropriate to once again adhere to the election procedures
outlined therein.  The remaining three board members have all agreed to
let their names stand again, so here is the initial list of nominees:

Gilbert Detillieux	Systems Analyst	University of Manitoba
Kevin McGregor	Systems Specialist	City of Winnipeg
Doug Shewfelt	Systems Specialist	City of Winnipeg

Of course, this list is just a starting point.  Any member in good
standing of the group can be nominated simply by getting the support of
one other member.  If you feel you would like to contribute to the group
by running for a board position, please don't hesitate to do so.  (In
fact, we'd like to see the number of board members increase.)

If you want to be nominated, or to nominate someone else, send a letter
to the group's postal box or deliver it in person to a current board
member.  The letter must contain the name, title, and employer of the
nominee, along with a short (100 word or so) biography, and must contain
the signatures of the nominee and one other member.  The letter must be
received no later than September 24, 2002, which is 14 days prior to the
October 8 meeting.

Although the by-laws require that the nominations be done in writing,
with signatures, you can speed up the process by also sending us e-mail
to <election at muug.mb.ca>, with the above information, and sending the
signed paper copy later.  In this case, please include the e-mail
address of both the nominee and the supporter on the CC: list of the
message, so that all parties concerned have a record of the communication.

If you have any questions about the election or the nomination process,
please contact Gilbert Detillieux, either by phone (474-8161) during
business hours, or by e-mail to <election at muug.mb.ca> anytime.
