We hope everyone is doing well in their preparations for Summer Nationals! The Long Island Division of the USFA just wanted to reach out quickly to make everyone aware that we will be having an annual meeting and election at the end of July. Though the official date and time have not yet been set, we expect it to be the weekend of July 30-31, 2016 at Hills Fencing Institute. (Thank you Hills for offering to host us all!) Below please find some more information about our election:
Who Can Vote?
If the all following criteria apply to you, you’re eligible to vote:
What are We Voting On?
You can be! Candidates may nominate themselves for an office by petition to the Executive Committee. Petitions shall contain signatures of no less than 5% of Division members eligible to vote in the election. (This year, that’s 8 signatures you need.) You must submit your petition to the board by July 20th so the signatures can be verified as valid eligible signees, and if all is good you will be added to the ballot.
The Division will be in touch with you all again as we finalize the date and time of the meeting, will provide directions, and will be sure to include any new candidates who petition for your consideration. In the meantime, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us. Good luck at Nationals, and we look forward to seeing you in July!
