NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS


 

2016 TES Elections

Arbiter: Spike

Parliamentarian: MJ

Directors, 2 year term: Gigi, Hank, meatcandy, Zero

Request for Candidates to Fill Vacant TES Board Position

 

We regret to announce that serena is stepping down as Treasurer and Member of the TES Board of Directors after one year. During that time, she streamlined the bookkeeping process, implemented expense protocols, brought our accounts into legislative compliance, enrolled the TES organization into the local and National Councils of Non-Profits and was part of the team responsible for the most profitable TES Fest to date. This has set new standards of exceptional service to the organization.

 

As per Article 6.6 in our Bylaws, we handle such director vacancies with a temporary appointment until the next October membership meeting and election. The appointment is made by a majority vote of the current Directors in office.

 

If you would like to be considered for this appointment, please send an immediate e-mail to tes@tes.org, as the bylaws state we shall make our decision by the next regular board meeting, taking place on Thursday November 10th, 2016. The only requirement is that you have been a TES member in good standing for one full year. The term of the new member of the Board appointed at the November Board meeting will last until the October 2017 election, a period of about 11 months.

 

Your e-mail placing your name into consideration for the vacant member of the board seat must be received by 11:59 pm on November 9th, 2016 to be considered for appointment.
