2015 Club Officer Elections
Have you ever wanted to run for office? Are you interested in helping the club? Want to become an even more active member?
Well then, it is almost time to have our bi-annual club officer elections.
Elected officers serve for one, two year term and no more than two terms consecutively.
If you are interested, make sure you meet with the selection committee in order to get your name on the ballot.
Since this is just a local election, you will only be allowed three negative TV campaign ads.
Make sure you hire your polling firms soon. Get your campaign manager to nail down your strategy.
Lastly, due to last election’s tragic incident, no robo-calls will be allowed.
