2010 Election Procedures:
The Nominating Committee has recommended three candidates to fill three open
positions on the Board of Directors of the LitvakSIG. The nominees are:
Judy Baston, David Hoffman and Eden Joachim. They have provided statements
about their qualifications, which have been posted on the Members
Only website, <www.litvaksig.com>.
The election will take place by email ballot between June 29 and July 9,
2010. LitvakSIG Members in good standing (those who paid $36 dues for 2010)
will receive an email ballot, which they must return by July 9 at midnight
Eastern Daylight Time, to litvaksigvote@.... Please make sure your
SPAM filter will allow mail received >from litvaksigvote@... so you
receive your electronic ballot.
Members may vote in person instead at the LitvakSIG annual meeting at the
IAJGS Conference on Jewish Genealogy in Los Angeles on July 14th.
The By Laws require that a quorum of at least 10% of the members must vote.
Directors are elected who receive a plurality of the votes cast. Each Member
may vote for three candidates.
Please review the statements of each of the candidates before casting your
vote. All Members will receive a ballot on June 29, 2010.
New Members may still join and vote in the election. The Treasurer must
receive your online or check payment by June 28, 2010 in order to vote by
electronic (email) ballot. Please don't wait until the last moment to pay
your dues if you would like to vote in this year's election. New Members who
join after June 28th may only vote at the July 14 meeting in Los Angeles.
