Title: Nominations for 2017 Member-Elected Board Positions
Post by: JeffT on November 02, 2016, 09:58:16 pm
This thread is for tracking, posting, and replying to nominations and seconds for member-elected board positions. This post will be updated as the status changes. People may post in this thread to nominate or second candidates, and candidates may respond to a nomination. For discussion or questions to candidates, please use the designated Q&A threads (https://www.kumoricon.org/forums/index.php?board=52.0) for each position instead.

Nominations must be seconded to be valid. You cannot nominate or second yourself. Once you have accepted a valid nomination by the deadline, you will be added to the list of candidates below. Once you are nominated and seconded, you may change your acceptance status at will until the nominations deadline of Tuesday, November 29, 2016, 11:59pm.

For general information about the elections meeting and process, see 2017 Elections Overview (https://www.kumoricon.org/forums/index.php?topic=19569.0).

After November 9, 11:59pm, all responses other than "Accept" ("Decline", "Defer", or "Not present") were changed to "Not accept". Candidates may still be nominated, and candidates may still change their responses after this date between "Accept" and "Not accept" until the final online nominations deadline of November 29, 2016, 11:59pm.

Can I double decline?

I don't believe that will probably be necessary, Jon. Thanks for looking out though. XD Way to be a bro and double check first.

Just to clarify, I did not interpret your question as, in itself, a decline. Just asking whether you could. :)

I nominate Mistymarie "kit" Salguero for director of Programming
I second this nomination. (Not a staffer, however I'd REALLY like to cohost the cosplay contest, next year).

That's ok, it counts. Nominations and seconds don't need to be staff.

My name is Mistymarie "Kit" Wilks-Salguero.

I would like to thank those who nominated me by accepting their invitation to run for director of programming.

 Short version: Thank you, I accept  :D

Prior to Kit's public acceptance, she contacted me privately to accept the nomination for Director of Programming, so I had edited the nominations list accordingly.

Thanks!

Josh here. I have been considering the position and what is best for the convention as a whole. At this time I would like to change my status to declining to run as the director of operations.

Hi, Brian Mathews here.  I'm a little late, but after talking with Jessica about it over the last couple of days about plans for the upcoming year, I'd like to decline my nomination and change to "not accept."
