January General Meeting and Special Elections
Posted December 21, 2013
The January general meeting will be held on Sunday, January 12, at 1:00pm at:
We will be holding special elections to fill vacancies in the positions of President (Chair) and Director of Relations.
This meeting is open to public attendance. Voting is open to Altonimbus Entertainment Members (Kumoricon staff for 2013 or 2014). The term of membership of Kumoricon 2013 staff remains active due to the overlap in annual staff terms.
Members must be present in person to vote, except for proxy voting. If you are a Member of Altonimbus Entertainment but cannot attend the meeting, you may designate another Member as your proxy. This means that the Member you designate as your proxy is authorized to cast your vote in your stead for any election or matter that comes before the membership for a particular meeting. A Member may only act as a proxy for no more than two other Members for a particular vote. You may authorize a proxy in either of two ways: (1) The Member not attending the meeting may authorize another Member using the online proxy authorization system, or (2) The proxy attending the meeting may bring a printed form to the meeting signed by the absent Member. Only one or the other is required, not both. The full proxy policy is printed on the authorization form.
There is a more detailed elections process document available to staff members (staff login required) detailing the elections meeting policy and procedure. The board is currently considering certain changes to the election policy and procedure. Any changes under consideration will be decided by Dec. 30 and released to staff very shortly after. A summary of the elections procedure is publicly available. Nominations are open on the forum until Jan. 7, 11:59pm. You may ask questions to candidates in the respective candidate Q&A threads for each position.
We have released the tentative membership meeting schedule for the 2014 convention year. The Meetings page will always have the most up-to-date schedule.
