Unit 179 Board Election
The Unit 179 board consists of 12 members. Its composition includes at least three members who are NOT residents of either Davidson or Williamson counties.
The main purposes of the Unit 179 Board of Directors are to promote bridge within its geographic area and to manage the sectional and regional tournaments it sponsors.
Each member of the Board of Directors is elected to a three-year term, with one third of the seats up for election each year. The bylaws provide that a nominating committee come up with a slate of candidates. The slate must include at least two candidates for one restricted seat (non Davidson or Williamson) and at least six candidates for the remaining three seats.
The bylaws also provide that any member of the unit may run for election by obtaining the signatures of ten other unit members in support of their candidacy. This communication serves as the invitation for anyone of our members to submit their name to be included in the slate of candidates for the upcoming election. Signature nomination lists must be received by midnight December 16 for the individual to be included in the election. Signature lists may be handed to any board member or sent electronically to Suzanne Torrence: email@example.com. The slate of nominees submitted by the nominating committee is as follows:
- Non-restricted: Anne Gibson, Karen Kendrick, Mary Pepper, Carol Schnaars, Patrick Williams, and Randi Young
- Restricted: David Smithfield and Fred Stahlman
Retiring board members: Bob Allard and Dot Blue
Incumbents running for re-election: Karen Kendrick and Patrick Williams
Continuing board members: Larry Averbuch, David Cochener, Michelle Coop. Bob Dietrich, Beth Derrick, Suzanne Torrence, and Micky Wilson
There is currently one vacancy.
The voting period will begin later in December and conclude in January for a period of two to three weeks. If the settings in your ACBL account include the acceptance of email communication from ACBL and authorized entities, you will receive an email with a link to vote electronically, If you do not accept ACBL email communication, you must vote by paper ballot. Since electronic voting is both the easiest and most efficient, you are encouraged to change your ACBL account settings to include acceptance of ACBL email communication if necessary. If you do so by December 16, that should ensure you will receive the electronic voting email.
