OCA Election Season: Nominations are open
October 5, 2010 12:03AM PDT
The OCA is a California non-profit corporation, whose business affairs are managed by four Officers (President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary) and seven Trustees. These people are nominated by the membership, and take office based on the results of an annual election. To be eligible for a Trustee position, the candidate must have been a member for over one year, and be over the age of 18. In addition, candidates for President or Vice President must have served as a Trustee for one year. Nominations are now being accepted for Trustee and Officer candidates. Self-nomination is encouraged: if you would like to contribute to the formal leadership of the club, to ensure that our activities and resources meet the expectations of the membership, please toss your hat into the ring! Nominations can be sent by e-mail to the Secretary, Bob Buchheim, or given to any of the Officers or Trustees, who will pass them on to Bob. The slate of candidates will be finalized at the close of the November General Meeting, and ballots will be included in the December Sirius Astronomer.
