It is, again, the time of year when ERCU begins the process to elect members of its board of directors.
The first step, of course, is nominating ERCU members to run for election. As such, there is a nomination form posted on the club’s website. Nominations have been closed for the 2021 ballot.
Nominations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 28, and can also be made in person at the Stan Sayres Memorial in Longview. On Sunday, Aug. 29, an online ballot will be posted on the club’s website for members to select four members of the seven-person ERCU Board of Directors. Those with expiring terms this year are Jerry Dunlap, Rick Evans, Nelson Holmberg and David Newton.
If a member prefers a paper ballot, one may be requested during the ERCU Gold Cup on September 11 in Lacey, or requested via U.S. mail. Voting will close at 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 12, and the election results will be announced shortly thereafter.
The ERCU Bylaws state that the board secretary shall tally the votes, unless that person is up for election, in which case the board shall appoint another board member to conduct the counting of ballots. This year, the club’s treasurer Ron Daum, will tally the votes.
