Reminder: Election Declarations Due April 16th

Tuesday, April 7, 2020  
Share |

This is the 2020 formal election notice to the
FALI membership.

If you are presently holding any elective office in FALI, and if you are planning to stand for re-election in 2020, or if you intend to run for another office, you must formally declare your candidacy between Tuesday April 7, 2020 and Thursday April 16, 2020. Please do so by sending me a statement to that fact, via email, U.S. Mail, or fax. Your declaration must be in my hands no later than the close of business on Saturday, Thursday April 16, 2020.

If you are not presently holding an elective office and if you desire to offer yourself for election, or if you desire to nominate someone to stand for election, then your statement of candidacy or nomination must be sent to me, via email, U.S. Mail, or fax, no earlier than Tuesday April 7, 2020, and must be in my hands no later than the close of business on Thursday April 16, 2020. All candidates for office must meet the requirements as provided for in the FALI Constitution and Bylaws.

We will once again be conducting the FALI election on-line. The FALI Board of Directors, with an eye towards saving a considerable amount of money and volunteer worker time and effort, instituted this process several years ago. This process eliminated any possibility of illegal voting and election fraud. We have once again engaged a professional, third-party company, whose only business is conducting on-line elections, to host our electronic voting. Full details and voter instructions will be forthcoming soon.
