Mid-America Mensa (MAM) will be electing a new Board of Directors before the January Board meeting. MAM’s Nominating Committee has chosen the following Board member nominees for their slate of board officers:

LocSec — Curt Krambeck
1st Vice President — Cynthia Heller
2nd Vice President — Rob Swenson
Secretary — Jean Matzeder Plumb
Treasurer — Diana Dyer
1st Member at Large — Anita Ford
2nd Member at Large — David Quisenberry

MAM’s Nominating Committee will meet at 6:30 pm just prior to the MAM Board meeting scheduled for January 13th, 2022, to present the slate to the Election Committee.

MAM’s Nominating Committee is responsible for submitting a slate of officers at the Nominating Meeting to be held no later than January 15th. There is also an option for making nominations from the floor, but some stipulations apply, so it is important to review the requirements in the MAM Bylaws.

According to Mid-America Mensa Bylaws (Article IV — Election Procedures, Part 4):

“Additional nominations may be made from the floor at the nominating meeting by any member in good standing and must be seconded by another such member. Nominations may also be submitted in writing, and seconded in writing, by mail, prior to the nominating meeting. Such nominations shall be sent to the chair of the Nominating Committee at an address printed along with the notice of the nominating meeting in the local publication.”

“Any additional nominees shall confirm in writing their willingness to serve, no later than the time and date of the nominating meeting.”

If there is only one nominee for any position, the Election Committee will announce the nominee to be elected ‘by acclamation’. If there is more than one nominee for any position, the MAM Election Committee will be responsible for conducting an election in accordance with the group Bylaws.
