I had someone ask and I think it is a valid question. For those that may not be privy to this information, what does each of the positions entail? I mean, other than running the departments that are under their name on the org chart, or is that what they do? haha.

The org chart is actually a pretty good reference. I've posted a summary in the Elections Summary thread.

As Kate is already seconded, and I am not familiar enough with the Relation's department I will nominate Samantha Taylor as a logical other choice for Relations Director since she too appears to have been an assistant in that department.


As a point of procedural clarification, should Jeff be elected as Chair, would he also retain his position as Secretary, or would we need to hold another election for that position?

I believe that Secretary is a Board-elected position, so other then nominations there would not need to be a member election if Jeff were to win Chair, and no longer be Secretary.

I would like to nominate Ally Fields for Director of Relations.

I'm answering this a bit more in the Chair Q&A thread.
