Time for elections in the NWOR SCCA

    I am looking for nominations for Officers and Director-at-Large positions on the Solo Board.  Many of the people have held these positions for several years and would welcome the opportunity to do something different or take a break.  SO, IF YOU OR SOMEONE YOU THINK WOULD BE GOOD AT ANY OF THE POSITIONS, PLEASE REPLY TO ME WITH THE NOMINATION.  Nominations will also be accepted at the September and October meetings.  Elections, if needed, will be held in December.


    In order for a member to be nominated for an Office or a Director-at-Large, he/she must have been a member of the region for the preceding fiscal year.

    An Officer or Director-at-Large must maintain a current membership during his/her entire tenure as an Officer or Director-at-Large or shall relinquish his/her rights and privileges as an Officer or Director-at-Large.

    In addition, a candidate for Director-at-Large must also have served as an SCCA or NWOR Officer or an SCCA or NWOR board member or an SCCA or NWOR committee member or be approved as a candidate by the Board of Directors.

    Duties of elected officials:

    Regional Executive and Assistant Regional Executive:  The Regional Executive shall preside at all meetings of the members and directors and shall perform the duties usually appertaining to the office.  He/She may call special meetings of the members under the provisions of Article III, Section 3.  He/She shall be the Chief Executive Officer of the Corporation.  In the absence of the Regional Executive or in the case of his/her death, resignation of inability or act, the Board of Directors shall designate some person to fill the unexpired term.  The Assistant Regional Executive shall act as Chairperson of the Membership Committee.  The Regional Executive will be the Chairperson of the Board of Directors.

    Treasurer: The Treasurer shall, be subject to such conditions and restrictions as be made by the Board of Directors, have custody of all monies, debts, and obligations belonging to the Corporation and deposit same in the Corporation account.  He/She shall make all payment of Corporation debts, checks, drafts, notes, or other orders for payment of money.  They shall give bond, at Corporation expense, if required by the Board of Directors.  The Treasurer shall give a report on the financial status of the Corporation at the Annual Meeting, and if so requested, at any other meeting.  No obligation, debt, or other liability shall be incurred by the Treasurer without the specific prior approval of the Regional Executive or Board of Directors.  If there is vacancy in the office, the Board of Directors shall designate some person to fill the unexpired term.

    Directors-at-Large:  The principle purpose of the Directors-at-Large is to give continuity and direction to Regional affairs.  The Directors-at-Large will concern themselves with the long-term objectives of the Region.  The continuing Director-at-Large will serve as the chairperson of the nominating committee for the annual election.
