Election for ISSA BOD 2016

Post by Jani Soderhall » Mon Aug 24, 2015 11:40 pm

At the end of each year approximately half of the board's position are up for grabs. This time we are looking for 4 candidates (renewals are welcome).

BOD members elected end 2013, serves until end 2015:
Hans "Corky" Koraeus
Humberto Salcedo
Rogerio "Sammy" Nogueira
Robert Thiele

BOD, elected end 2014, serves until end 2016:
Jani Soderhall
Patric Duletzki
Ron Barbagallo

In addition to help on the BOD we also need a calendar administrator and three EU status marshals. Ideally one of the three EU Status Marshals will also serve on the BOD.

What can YOU do for the ISSA?

You don't have to have a political program, a fantastic strategy all worked out in advance, or any other specific prerequisite to fill any of these positions, you just need you to have been part of the scene for a while and be able to speak out your thoughts, discuss and carry out decisions. We all know and hope that the BOD should do much more than they do, but we've come to accept that time is limited for us all, and that it's difficult to set aside enough time to accomplish all we would like to. So instead of doing it all, we're just doing what we can, given the circumstances. That's all that we ask from you too.

As we start dividing the work for 2016, it's likely that we'll try to have clearer areas of focus, so that BOD members can act on their own within their areas of responsibility. It's already partly like that but we'd like to make that every clearer as we elect new BOD members.

Without Wesley Tucker R.I.P. we'll be less formal with the election process and candidate suggestions. If you would like to help out post back here, or contact any of us. We'll set up an election also, possibly with short notice, towards the end of the year, but time is running fast, so we'd better act fast.

I'll post at FB also as we near election time. Only paying member can vote in the election. See the slalomskateboarder.com front page for a link to pay your membership dues.
