Diaspora - 18 March 2020 Elections Kickoff

CMW Elections Kick off - 2020

 

It is that time of year again when the Election Committee reaches out to voting members for nominations of names to serve on the Board of Directors.  Please expect an email via survey monkey, April 1st, asking for a maximum of 3 nominations to serve.

When CMW was started, it was suggested that we have a rotating Board of Directors.  We adopted this idea because it keeps fresh ideas coming in to CMW, and won't allow any one individual or group of individuals to have control of our organization.  Since inception, this has worked extremely well.  As the process goes, nominations are opened on 1 April of every year, and then the nomination period closes on 11 April. This will be true for this year again.

We are an all-volunteer group, so we rely upon those who are willing to serve.  Terms are for 3 years.  A Board member may run again for an additional 3 years, but then they must sit out at least a year before serving again.  Once the Board has been selected, the new members will convene in January of the following year to start the next term.  And in January, the Board votes from among the 9 members to place the Executive: the President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.  And there you have it.

If you are a voting member (yes - this is one advantage of being a paying member, you are a voting member), please consider running for the Board of Directors, or nominate another voting member to serve on the Board of Directors.

CMW is a 501(c)3 corporation, and we are very proud of our ability to provide to our members ongoing information about archaeological discoveries we sponsor, game highlights, geneaology assistance, FtDNA participation, athletic/dance sponsorships, group trips to MacFarlane heritage sites in Scotland (2020), and more.  Please consider sharing your time and MacFarlane interest with all of us.
