Annual Meeting of the Membership and 2017 Elections

Posted November 15, 2016

The Annual Meeting of the Membership will be held on Saturday, December 3, at 11:30am (note earlier time) at:

Oregon Convention Center – Room D135 (Google Maps)
777 NE Martin Luther King Jr Blvd
Portland, OR 97232

At the Annual Meeting of the Membership, elections will be held for the following positions:

  • Chair/President
  • Director of Infrastructure
  • Director of Membership
  • Director of Operations
  • Director of Programming
  • Director of Publicity
  • Director of Relations

This meeting is open to public attendance. Voting is open to Altonimbus Entertainment Members (Kumoricon staff).

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. It is the "Elections Process" link in the "Meetings" section. This policy has had some minor revisions since the last election. We encourage interested staff to review it. A summary of the elections procedure is publicly available. Nominations are open on the forum until Nov 29, 11:59pm. You may ask questions to candidates in the respective candidate Q&A threads for each position. There is also an anonymous question and comment process.

Please note that the meeting starts earlier than normal, at 11:30am, to provide enough time for all the elections.
