Election Forums Open Oct. 1

Grab your soap boxes and questions - the PASS Board of Directors election season kicks off tomorrow with the opening of the Election Forums.

The PASS Board has three seats up for election for the 2012/2013 term. A fourth seat – being vacated mid-term by Douglas McDowell, who will take on the role of Executive Vice President, Finance – will be appointed for a 1-year term by the Board president, according to the PASS Bylaws. You can learn more about your Board of Directors here.

The Elections Forums provide a great opportunity for members of the PASS Community to ask about the elections process, get information about running for the Board, pose questions to the candidates, and discuss platforms and issues with the community.  To participate, all you have to do is log in with your PASS user information and post away! We will also be providing links to community blog posts about the elections on the Discussion page to keep you up-to-date with all the news and commentary.

And of course, if you are interested in running for the PASS Board, keep in mind that applications open in just 6 days on Wednesday, Oct. 5, and must be submitted to PASS HQ by Oct. 19. You can start reviewing the PASS 2011 Elections site today for basic candidate qualifications and a full elections time line.

With your participation, it’s going to be an exciting, valuable elections season – let the  conversations begin!
