New three-year terms are approaching for District Board Members to be elected to represent Alaska units at large (Units 425, 426, and 427), Vancouver Island Units at large (Units 429 and 430), and B.C. Units at large (Units 456, 471, 474) on the District Board for the 2020-2022 term.
Any ACBL member who is a member of an Alaskan Unit, a member of either the Parksville or Victoria Units, or any member of the Quesnel, Okanagan or Kootney Units may declare themselves a candidate for their respective area. If more than one candidate for a position files, the District will run an election this late summer-fall.
Kathie Hoehne is the current Alaskan board member, and Chris Cookson is the current Vancouver Island board member. The position is currently vacant for the B.C. at Large position which covers the Quesnel, Okanagan and Kootney Units. At the District Board’s Victoria meeting in April, the B.C. at large position will be filled for the remainder of this year. It is likely that the incumbents for these three positions will decide by the end of the Victoria meeting whether they are running for reelection.
The deadline for declaring candidacy is 15 July 2019. Declarations should be made to the undersigned District Elections Chair by either letter or email. Declarations should be accompanied by a brief platform/resume statement which will be used if an election is necessary. If an election is necessary unit board members of the respective areas will be the electors.
