BOARD CANDIDATE BIOS
To all HMGS Inc, Members,
In accordance with the HMGS Inc. By-Laws, we are currently conducting the annual HMGS Inc. 2017 Election for four Board of Director (BoD) seats. Your Election Committee for 2017 consists of John Snead, Mitch Osborne and myself. We report to the BoD and the HMGS Membership through a designated HMGS Director who is not running in this election.
Election Ballots have already been mailed out to HMGS members with a valid membership current as of the last day of Cold Wars 2017. The ballots should reach everyone no later than (NLT) 1 May, 2017. IF you are sure your membership is current as of the end of Cold Wars, and if you have not received a ballot by 1 May, 2017, please contact the Election Committee ASAP at ELECTION@HMGS.ORG or call me directly at the numbers listed below. When you contact us please include your current contact information [email address, mailing address, phone number, etc] as well as the date of your last membership renewal. We will work with the BoD to confirm your status.
Each Ballot has a unique member-voting control number on it, and therefore cannot be reproduced. Remember to personally sign the ballot so that your vote will count. HMGS Inc. does not allow for Proxy voting.
Biographies of all candidates are included in the ballot mailing. The bios may also be found on the official HMGS Inc. website. [www.hmgs.org]
Ballots must be postmarked no later than Friday, June 9, 2017.
In addition to the BoD election, there are five referenda to be voted on. Please take your time to review and discuss them. These referendums are from Membership Meetings and presented here to the full membership for a vote as per HMGS By-Laws. The referenda will also be posted to our website along with the Bios.
I encourage the candidates and membership to ask and answer questions on the official forum as much more can be discussed there than in a 500 word bio. You can also post questions to our website. [www.hmgs.org]
We encourage all members to please participate both by asking questions of the candidates as well as mailing in your ballot as soon as possible.
HMGS Inc. 2017 Election Chairperson
