Officers and Directors
CALL FOR 2020 NOMINATIONS!
It is time to submit your nominations for the 2020-2021 RCAT Officer and Board of Director positions. Next year's Board will be announced during the annual business meeting. The 2020 Conference had to be rescheduled due to COID-19 so our meeting will take place via Zoom Video Conference on Thursday November 5th. This meeting is open to the entire membership.
We need nominations from the membership for:
- four regular Board of Directors positions, who will serve three-year terms;
- one Officer position that will serve on the Executive Committee for a five-year term starting with Vice President. This position will be voted into office by ballot of the nominees received.
Keep in mind that an Officer nomination must have already served at least one year on the Board of Directors to be eligible. All nominees must be RCAT members in good standing and have not already served more than two consecutive terms on the Board.
Associate positions on the Board are appointed by the Board and not elected, so there is no need to nominate Associate members.
The Nominating Committee, chaired by President-Elect, A.J. Huckaby will make selections for Board positions and present them to the Board of Directors for approval. The Nominating Committee will also prepare the new slate of officers for an electronic ballot, to be presented to the membership for vote, no less than 15 days prior to the annual meeting.
All nominations will be given fair and equal consideration, and you are encouraged to participate in helping shape the leadership of your association. ALL nominations must be received by 5:00PM on September 4, 2020.
Board members whose terms have not expired and will continue to serve the RCAT membership are as indicated with an *asterisk below.
