TCYLA 2020-2021 elections are approaching! All candidates for Director or Officer must be current members of TCYLA.
Elections for President-Elect and Secretary-Treasurer will take place at the Board meeting on April 7. Candidates must be current Board Members. You may nominate someone or self-nominate by emailing Martin Garcia by March 6.
The Nominations Committee will meet in June to propose next year’s elected slate of Directors. If you are interested in serving as a Director, please email Martin Garcia by May 5. The Nominations Committee will present the slate at the July Board Meeting; after that meeting, the President will appoint two additional Directors. If you are interested in running and are not elected or appointed, the July Newsletter will detail petition information, which is also found in Article 8.4(b) of the TCYLA Bylaws.
All candidates are encouraged to review the TCYLA Bylaws, and keep in mind the prohibition against campaigning: “A candidate for Director of the Corporation shall not, either before or after the placing of said candidate’s name on the ballot, promote himself or herself for said position through the use of social media, mass mailings, mass electronic transmission, or mass facsimile transmissions. Furthermore, no candidate for such office will encourage anyone else to use the foregoing means to promote his or her candidacy.” Article 8.5(b).
