Time to Vote!
When we set up our corporation, the Clan MacFarlane Worldwide, Inc., we wanted to ensure that CMW would be run by our members, and not someone who has a chokehold on the function and future of our organization. To that end, CMW holds elections EVERY YEAR for 3 Board of Director members.
We are governed by a body of 9 Board of Directors. Each Director may serve for a 3-year term, and upon completion of one term, they may run again. But at the end of 6 years of serevice, they must step away. We do this to keep ideas and leadership young and fresh. We also do not want one individual to control the future of CMW. We want our participating, voting members to do that. And we don't want old worn out cronies to keep control. Right?
So with all that in mind, if you are currently a voting member, and qualified for the Corporate Date of Record in June, as a paying member, you will receive an email ballot tomorrow, August 11th. If we have your current and correct email address, it will be in your inbox sometime during the day. If you do not see it in the inbox, please check your spam/junk folder. It might have landed there. We do use the SurveyMonkey service, so your email service might deem it unworthly of your inbox. But once you are certain that you didn't receive your ballot, please reach out to me via email, and I'll get one off to you right away.
This year, there are 4 candidates. Each one of them is worthy of your consideration. their biographies are included in the ballot so you can make a careful consideration of each of them. Please vote for a total of 3 out of the 4 candidates.
The election closes on midnight (C.S.T.) of September 11, 2019. The candidates will be contacted about the outcome and then the results will be announced by our Secretary on the website, on our facebook page, in our Diaspora, and in the Loch Sloy!
And with that, I wish each candidate the best of luck!
