Over the last three years the SHPE Boston Board has been going through a re-build process to create an organization that has a strong foundation, is sustainable and meets the needs of its constituents. As one of the culmination points to this process we have revised our Bylaws this year. As per section 12.4 of or Bylaws there are four elected executive officer positions: President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary. To ensure seamless continuity of on-going projects during election years, our Bylaws have specified that elections for the President and Secretary should occur on odd numbered years (like 2013) and elections for Vice-President and Treasurer on even numbered years.
Currently, Tomas Maldonado (our 2013 Region IV RLDC fearless leader) has been nominated for President, with no current nominations for Secretary. There is still time for people interested in the two elected positions to be nominated. If you’re interested in running for one of the executive positions or want to be part of the SHPE Boston Board please contact Juana Paniagua at JuanaP@shpeboston.com. In the event that there is more than one candidate for the elective positions, a separate email will be sent to the registered members with information on how to vote for the candidates. The final announcement of the elected officials will be made public on June 14th.
