Seeking your nominations: 2016 officer elections

ELX-election-ballot-300x251The Society for News Design is seeking nominations for the office of Secretary/Treasurer for 2016. This is an open-ballot position: anyone who is nominated, meets the requirements of the position and chooses to run will appear on the ballot.

Nominees must be members of the Society in good standing, with a history of service to the organization. They should also have a record of managing people and a working understanding of financial operations.

We will accept nominations through Thursday, Aug. 13. Please send your nominations to: skomives@snd.org. Candidates will be announced Friday, Aug. 14.

Voting will begin on Sept. 4, and continue through Oct. 15. Election results will be announced on Friday, Oct. 16.

The SND offices of President and Vice President will also appear on the ballot. The Society operates a leadership “ladder” where the Secretary Treasurer is automatically nominated to be Vice President and the Vice President to be President. Those nominees still must be elected, but the two higher offices generally run unopposed. Online balloting does allow write-ins.
