Hear ye, hear ye!
This is the FINAL CALL for nominees to participate in the election for
the MUUG board. Those elected will serve from October 2006 until
October 2007. The deadline to nominate yourself, or someone else, is
September 26, 2006. (That's tomorrow, folks!) Instructions follow.
The MUUG board is charged with coordinating the meetings and other
events by the group. It's fun, and you get a role in guiding the group.
All are encouraged to apply.
MUUG Board Elections - Call for Nominations
Every October the Manitoba Unix User Group holds its Annual Meeting, the
main goals of which are to elect a new Board of Directors and to pass
any special resolutions. (Aside from that, it is a regular meeting)
Any member in good standing can be nominated to run for a position.
As of this writing, the following members of the current Board have let
their names stand for re-election:
Gilbert Detillieux Systems Analyst University of Manitoba
Michael Doob Professor University of Manitoba
Kevin McGregor Systems Specialist City of Winnipeg
Doug Shewfelt Systems Specialist City of Winnipeg
Adam Thompson Consultant athompso.net
Shawn Walbridge System Administrator Frantic Films
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 26, 2006, which is 14 days prior to the
October 10 meeting.
Although the by-laws require that the nominations be done in writing,
with signatures, you can speed up the process by 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.
Nominees should familiarize themselves with the MUUG bylaws, found here:
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.
