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 November 2011 until
October 2012. The deadline to nominate yourself, or someone else, is
October 25, 2011. 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 year, in the fall, 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 MUUG member in good standing can be nominated to run for
a position on the Board.
As of this writing, the following MUUG members have let their names
stand for election or re-election:
Sean Cody Consultant TinFoilHat
Trevor Cordes Owner/Operator Tecnopolis Enterprises
Gilbert Detillieux Systems Analyst University of Manitoba
Michael Doob Professor University of Manitoba
Robert Keizer System Administrator Thinkbox Software Inc.
Katherine Scrupa Info Systems Desk Tech St. John's Ravenscourt
Doug Shewfelt Systems Specialist City of Winnipeg
Adam Thompson Consultant athompso.net
Brad Vokey Owner Fortress Software Inc.
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 to 10.)
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 October 25, 2011, which is 14 days prior to the
November 8 meeting.
Although the by-laws require that the nominations be done in writing,
with signatures, you can speed up the process by sending 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.
