2019 Elections Overview
« on: November 01, 2018, 08:05:25 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.

Seven of the nine board members are elected by the membership (staff of Kumoricon) at the Annual Meeting of the Membership:
  • Chair (a.k.a. President)
  • Director of Infrastructure
  • Director of Membership
  • Director of Operations
  • Director of Programming
  • Director of Publicity
  • Director of Relations
Nominations are currently open for candidates for these positions. You may nominate, second, and respond to nominations in Nominations for 2019 Member-Elected Board Positions.

You may post questions to candidates in the respective thread for each position.

At the Annual Meeting of the Membership, elections are held for each position. For each election, 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. This post will be edited with instructions to authorize a proxy once official notice for the annual meeting has been sent.

As in previous elections, the process will include an anonymous question and comment period.

There is a more detailed elections process document available to staff members (staff login required) detailing the elections meeting policy and procedure. We encourage interested staff to review it.

The Annual Meeting of the Membership has been officially scheduled for Saturday, November 17, 2018, at 12:00 noon, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Portland. Please see the meetings page for the official notice and for the most up-to-date information.
