Depending on the number of contestants, we will decide on whether to hold the elections. Elections: Dumas members can nominate a member whom they think is a good fit for these positions. If another family seconds the nominee, they will be in the running for the open positions. 1) Nomination process is for 2 weeks Starting September 4th 2) Election process will be done by 3 board of Directors who are not a part of the committee. For this year it is selected by the Director board as James Kolencherry, Joy Chacko and Jose Paul . Here are some things you need to know about our election process: Only one nomination allowed per family. Another member from a different family should second each nominee. When you are nominating a member, please ensure that you are not nominating committee members who are continuing, and members who are stepping down. However, a committee member stepping down can become the board of trustee and a board of trustee member can move into the committee if they wish to do so. Board of trustee should already have served one term in the executive committee. A family can only second one nomination.
The election will be conducted as follows: If there are nominations larger than available vacancies, the board of trustees will ask if any nominee wants to withdraw in order to avoid elections. If there are no withdrawals, elections will be held. Elections will be via secret ballot on forms provided by the board of trustees which will email to all the members. Each member family will have two votes. One for the husband and one for the wife Children or youth from a family will not be eligible for vote. Board of Trustees will declare the winner at the end of the election process. Committee members will elect the President, Secretary, Treasurer, Arts committee Chair and Sports Committee Chair during the first meeting which will be held right after the election.
