2016 Election Night

Quelab’s annual board election will be held on Wednesday 17 Feburary 2016, starting at 7PM at Tractor Brewing Wells Park. We will have the whole taproom to ourselves to have a celebratory end to 2015, and a welcoming of the new 2016. Bring a project to show off, and come join the community of Quelab in a party setting.

The nominations will end this coming Wednesday, and the official slate of candidates will be announced at that time on the members list. All members paid in full (or on automatic payment) will be sent a voting guide, and all the candidates will be invited to post a quick blog entry as an introduction: keep your eyes peeled.

We will have the folks from Spork The World on hand to provide food, but the taproom is welcome to any food brought in. And even though this is being held at an drinking establishment, minors are welcome with their guardians.

Electronic voting will start on Monday at 8PM, and will run until Wednesday at 8PM, so on-site and electronic voting will both be closed at that time, and we will go and tabulate the results and announce the winners of the election this evening.

So join us at Tractor Brewing Wells Park on Wednesday 17 February, from 7-10PM!

2016 Board Election Process

Greetings Quelab Members!

The Quelab Board Of Directors Election is coming up. There will be a period of 3 days for people to vote, ending Wednesday February 17, 2016 at 8pm during our election celebration event. During the election period, all voting members will have a chance to submit their vote electronically. At the election event, before 8pm, anyone who hasn’t voted yet can submit a paper ballot.

Nominations – Beginning now, any member can submit a nomination for the election. The nominee must be at least 18 years old but does not have to be a Quelab member. Members can nominate themselves. Once a nominee confirms that they are interested they will have a chance to introduce themselves and communicate their interest to the members. Nominees will be encouraged to create a 3-minute or less YouTube video to introduce themselves as a candidate. Send nominations to secretary@quelab.net. Nominations will close on February 12, 2016.

Counting – When voting, everyone will be asked to rank all of the candidates that they want to vote for, they can rank as many candidates as they want. Unless they are only voting for one candidate, the votes must be ranked. The votes will be counted using a single transferable vote system. This video has a good explanation of that system:

There is a minimum quorum requirement (52%), and we want to have everyone’s input, so please vote!

If there are any questions please address them to officers@quelab.net

Sincerely
Chris Hughes
Secretary

This is the first-part of our annual planning meeting, where we brainstorm all the things we’ve done in the past year which were awesome, the things we could have done better, and the things we want to do again. Then we move on to new things we would like to do in the coming year. The January Meeting is where we prioritize all the things we discussed so the board has a focus for the coming year.
