It is that time of year again! All of our Council of Villas and Regimes Officers (President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer) come up for election each year. The COVAR Bylaws require that a Notice to Accept Nominations for COVAR Officers be sent 45 days prior to the first meeting of the year (Wednesday, January 9, 2019). We are therefore accepting nominations for officers starting November 26th. The following is a timetable for the process ending with the results of an election being announced at the January 9th meeting.
December 14–Nominations are due by submission to the COVAR Secretary, Cindy Brown, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Anyone, including the nominee, can nominate a candidate for a COVAR Officer position. Each nominee may include a one-page bio with the submission.
December 17–Ballots and bios are e-mailed to each COVAR association/regime president whose association/regime has paid 2018 dues.
January 7—Ballots are due to COVAR Secretary
January 9–Winning candidates are announced. Newly elected officers assume their duties at the end of the meeting.
It should be noted that three of the current officers have agreed to serve for another year if elected. They are:
President – Debra Lehman
Vice President – Alison Standard
