This bulletin is directed to CURRENT MEMBERS of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of MECDA. On December 6, 2013 the following Call for Nominations was sent to our current membeership list:

Hello Members of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter of MECDA,

It's that time of year again - time to nominate your choices for each of the Board Officers for calendar year 2014.

We are conducting both the nominations and the election online using the online survey site Surveymonkey.com. Please note that you must have your membership number on the first page in order to proceed to the rest of the nomination pages. If you have misplaced your number, send an email to us immediately at info.sfbamecda@gmail.com and we will send it to you. Invalid membership numbers will cause a vote to be discarded! Nominations will close at midnight on Sunday, December 22, so get your nominations in soon! When you nominate at Surveymonkey.com, be sure you have filled in all four (4) nomination boxes (one on each page for each of four offices) before you click on "Done" or "Exit Survey". After you click on "Done" or "Exit Survey", you will NOT be able to change or otherwise access the nomination survey.

The nominations are now open at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GP3W2NH

Shortly after the cutoff date December 22, we will send notices to those who have been nominated, asking them for their acceptance or rejection. When we have their responses, we will set up the ballot on Surveymonkey and will ask the membership, via email, to login to the election survey and vote. Thank you in advance for taking part in this year's nomination and election process!

IF YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE A CURRENT SF/BA MECDA MEMBER BUT DID NOT RECEIVE THE DECEMBER 6TH CALL FOR NOMINATIONS, please email us at info.sfbamecda@gmail.com before Sunday, December 22nd and we will attempt to verify your membership status with MECDA Central and provide you with information about how you can nominate candidates. Put "Member Inquiry" in the subject line.

Members are eligible to volunteer to be Elections Clerk if they are not nominated for any office. If you are interested, you can also email us at info.sfbamecda@gmail.com before Sunday, December 22nd. Put "Elections Clerk" in the subject line.
