Gotham’s upcoming elections are around the corner! Elections will be held for Fall 2016 Captains in Divisions 1-10 as well as the Leadership positions of President (formerly Commissioner), Secretary, Treasurer and one Director seat on the Board of Directors.
Sign-ups will be accepted starting Saturday, April 16 until April 29 at 6 PM, and elections will run from May 1-May 4.
The positions of President, Secretary, Treasurer and Director require a significant time commitment (several hours per week). Any member is eligible to run for an leadership position, however, candidates for President must have served on the Board within the last three years. These positions are for a two-year term, from June 1, 2016 through May 31, 2018. If you are interested in a Leadership position, we strongly encourage you to discuss the duties and time commitment with a current Gotham Leader.
To run for a position, email [email protected] with your name, the position you’d like to run for. For President, Treasurer and Secretary, you can also provide an optional statement (less than 250 words), which will then appear on the ballot. In order to be placed on the ballot, the member who is running must e-mail in. While members may wish to nominate other members, the actual member who is running must be the person to e-mail in to confirm they are interested.
Get involved!!! You can make a difference!
Under our new organizational structure, there are many new opportunities to become a Gotham Leader. Right now, we are looking for members to fill all of these new positions (which start on June 1).
