2017  Directors & Officers  Nominations Open


Eclipse Users Group/UFO Nominating Committee Slate/Report
The following have been nominated as Directors for a two year term beginning on January 1, 2017 by the Nominating Committee. 

The Nominating Committee consists of Kris Hopkins (Committee Chair), Debbie Hudec and Tammy Jones (Committee Members).  

This year we had a record number of people with interest in serving on the Board of Directors and every one of them would have been a great choice, making this a very tough decision.  

The Nominating Committee narrowed it down to eight candidates based on the needs of the Board with regards to region, company type, and committee needs. The Slate of Candidates includes 7 new people and one returning director, for a total of 8 to select from.

The delegate from each member company will be asked to vote for 6 of the 8 candidates.  Since this email goes out to all contacts please review the options and let your delegate know your opinion of those running. 

Make sure to review the Officer nominations as well.
We have put together this document to help you review each nominee easily as well as let you know of some of the needs of the board that they may fill.
