Eumie Imm-Stroukoff, Chair
The 2003 Nominating Committee consisted of Lorna Corbetta-Noyes, Daphne Dufresne, Clayton Kirking, Ed Teague, and Eumie Imm-Stroukoff, Chair. Allen Townsend was the Executive Board liaison.
The committee sought candidates for Vice-President/President-Elect, Treasurer, Canadian Representative, and Western Regional Representative. During the committee’s business meeting at the 2003 conference in Baltimore, potential candidates were identified for each of these offices. After the conference, committee members continued to correspond via email to further identify interested and eligible candidates. Each prospective candidate was asked to submit a curriculum vita and 3 references. Candidates were rated on the basis of Society and professional experience, as well as other qualifications and relevant skills in relation to the position being sought.
The committee assembled a slate of one candidate for each office for approval by the Executive Board in accordance with Article IX of the bylaws. This slate was presented to the general membership via ARLIS-L on September 24, 2003. In addition, the ARLIS/NA web site posted information about the candidates, along with their photographs.
Vice-President/President-Elect: Margaret Webster
Treasurer: Lynda White
Canadian Representative: Jonathan Franklin
Western Regional Representative: Peggy Keeran
The Chair received no further nominations by petition within 30 days of the presentation of the slate and announced the slate elected by acclamation on October 31, 2004.
The Chair will be transferring committee documentation along with a list of prospective candidates to the incoming Chair, Betsy Peck Learned.
The committee suggests that the Board examine and review Policy G-5, which disallows concurrent Chapter officer and Executive Board service:
POLICY G-5: “Executive Board members may not serve as Chairs, Moderators, and/or coordinators of ARLIS/NA committees, divisions, sections, and/or round tables or as officers of local chapters except for Board subcommittees such as CPAC. [rev. 3/3/03; 2/4/93] [formerly Policy C4-7]”
