2015 Special Elections Overview
« on: February 09, 2015, 09:29:06 pm »
Altonimbus Entertainment is the name of the organization that owns and runs the Kumoricon convention. Altonimbus, and thereby Kumoricon, is governed by a board of directors consisting of nine members who each serve annual terms. Terms begin and end at the annual meeting of the body which elects each board member.

A special election is being held on March 14, 2015, to fill a vacancy in the position of Director of Publicity.  Teph Williams tendered her resignation effective February 8, 2015.  We thank her for her years of service and wish her well in her future endeavors.

Nominations are currently open for candidates for this position. You may nominate, second, and respond to nominations in Nominations for Special Election - Director of Publicity.

You may post questions to candidates in Candidate Q&A - 2015 Director of Publicity (remainder of current term).

Similar to the procedure at the Annual Meeting of the Membership, special elections are held for each vacant position. For each election (in this case, only the one), there are candidate opening speeches, a period for questions to the candidates, and voting by secret, written ballots.

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. Online proxy authorization is currently active.

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 last link in the General subsection under Documents.

Please see the meetings page for the most up-to-date meeting information.
