Thank you for the opportunity, but I would like to decline my nomination to the Directorship of Publicity.

I am still actively deferring my decision regarding the Directorship of Relations.

Pyro, the guy loves to promote Kcon. He was very involved with registration in the months just before con, and I feel his desire to see the con grow and function well as paralled by few. While he may be busy, and the need for a good registration manager is high, I would like to nominate Aaron "Pyro" Tietelbaum for Director of Publicity.

Acceptance is up to you Pyro, but at least this plants the idea in your head.

 I am deferring my nomination till the meeting, as i need to make sure that my fiance is ok with it.

This means your name would not be printed on the ballot, and people who wish to vote for you would have to write in your name.

This will have no effect on any other aspect of elections, e.g., your ability to participate in the Q&As.

If that is the case then, please do not deffer it, I will accept the nomination. If i have to i will decline it at the meeting, but for now accept it.

Speaking of ballots -- I intend to print on Friday night, so please consider quickly any further nominations or (if applicable) changes to your acceptance status.  Only candidates who have accepted their nomination will be printed.  (If you have been nominated but you do not have a forum ID with which to reply, please email secretary@kumoricon.org with your response.)

Remember again, since you can always vote for a write-in candidate, "closing" nominations only freezes the list of who will be printed on the ballots.

Since some people are potentially in more than one race, it's important to know in which order the races will be run at the Election. Is the order listed here the order in which voting will proceed? Thanks.

While I cannot guarantee how the Secretary and Chair will please themselves to handle elections this year,
Historically it has gone:

President
Operations
Programming
Publicity
Relations

Although I can't find record of 2008, where I assume it was the same...2007 has a different
scheme;

President
Operations
Relations
Programming
Publicity


2006 however goes back to the Pres,Ops,Prog,Pub,Rel model... which seems to be to be
an adequate estimate of the schedule of events. Of course...

Things are always subject to change.

Thanks for the history. It's because I have seen them vary over the years that I am inquiring.

The bylaws require President/Chair to be run first. If a majority is not elected in one vote for President/Chair, then other elections can be run next according to the normal discretion of those running the meeting.

Quote
Article 7: Election, Tenure, Removal, and Resignation of Officers and Managing Directors

D. Requirements and Conduct of Elections for Membership-Elected Positions

8. If an election for President and for other Member-Elected Positions is occurring at a Meeting, then an attempt to elect the President must occur prior to attempted elections for any other Positions.

The bylaws also state that a board member-elect has until the close of the meeting to accept or decline a winning election, and that if the winner declines, then the election is voided, and a new one must be held. (Declining the election in this specific manner is not treated as a resignation, which would have a different sequence of events.) The purpose of this is to facilitate a single person running for multiple positions when they only want to retain a single position, but perhaps don't know which position they can win, and so that this is possible regardless of the order of elections.

As corollaries of this, to ensure that the above is effective, the bylaws also state that elections do not cause a change in office until the close of the meeting they take place in, and also, until all elections have had at least one vote, the meeting cannot be closed without an affirmative two-thirds vote of the members present.

Quote
Article 7: Election, Tenure, Removal, and Resignation of Officers and Managing Directors

C. Election and Tenure

2. An individual shall take the office to which he or she has been elected at the close of the Meeting at which the election takes place. If the individual does not explicitly accept or decline the election, he or she shall be presumed to have accepted the election.

a. If prior to the close of the Meeting in which an election has occurred, an elected person expressly declines the Position, the election shall be void and another election for that Position must be held.

Article 10: Meetings, Voting and Quorum

B. Meetings of the Membership

7. It shall be sufficient to close a Membership Meeting:

a. If any action that the Members have a right to take for which valid Notice was given to occur at that Meeting has not yet occurred, then by a two-thirds vote of the Members present and casting a vote, or;

b. If all actions that the Members have a right to take for which valid Notice was given to occur at that Meeting have occurred or been voted on, then by declaration of the presiding officer of the Meeting, or a majority vote of Members present and casting a vote.

Barring meaningful objection, that's probably how it will be run.

Thanks, Jeff & Jo.
So hypothetically, a scenario could emerge in which a race has to be run again, with improvised ballots or some other way of voting. A little complicated, but I'm sure everything will work out.

Bambie, you're lucky I love you.

Okay, so I'm printing the ballots tonight.  Nominations will close at 9:00 PM PDT.

Again, this only affects who will be PRINTED ON THE BALLOT.  You can still vote for anyone by write-in.

I'm glad I got your response offline before 9:00. 

Remember, everyone: You can still vote for any candidate by writing in.  However, further nominations in this thread will not be printed on the ballots.

Yes, I <3 that movie; all elections should have a similar no-confidence voting option.  Of course I prepared my initial picks for voting last night, and in no cases would I select that option.

I'm happy to report that for all races there is at least one person I feel will do a great job.  Further that even for the race I dropped out of I think the other two candidates will probably do at least as well as I thought I could and really hope they're aggressive about meeting soft deadlines.
