Dear DAMA Chapter Presidents, Chapter Officers, and Members,
Today (June 8) it has been seven weeks since the previous board’s announcement. Differing resignation schedules and technology challenges have taken longer than they should. As a reminder, we committed to a published plan on 22 April:
|04/30/2018||Publish DAMA-I Elections Calendar||04/22/2018|
|04/30/2018||Publish draft DAMA-I Elections Process for Comment||04/22/2018|
|04/22/2018||Present draft DAMA-I Elections Process to PC at EDW||04/22/2018|
|05/15/2018||Incorporate changes to process as voted on by PC||05/15/2018|
|05/30/2018||Chapters must be in ‘active’ status to participate||05/30/2018|
|05/15/2018||Solicit nominations / validate / publish nominations|
|06/15/2018||Publish final list of eligible voting chapters and election ballot|
|07/01/2018||Voting completes and results are announced|
As you can see, previous deadlines have been met, but the nomination process is now running behind schedule, and I’m asking for your input.
The new board and advisors are encountering delays gaining mastery over the DAMA-I communication infrastructure, including the email, traditional and various social media accounts. As head of the elections committee, we should be using these to get the word out about the elections process. This inability constrained us from opening the nomination process before today.
At this point, we have a nomination survey on this platform ready to go. We want to get your input on how we should proceed. Please answer our one question survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DAMAIElection201806Schedule by Monday 11 June 2018 11:59 UTC
