Dear Cleveland NOW members:
At our April meeting, we endorsed several candidates for office from Cuyahoga County. A full description of the process, together with a list of the endorsed candidates, is attached. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read over it, and remember to vote this May 8th.
Also, in June, we’ll hold our own elections for chapter officers. All seats are open, so please consider stepping into leadership of the organization. We’ll be electing a new president, vice president for action, and secretary-treasurer. Terms are one year. You’ll find descriptions of the responsibilities for each position in the bylaws and operating rules (also attached).
If you are interested in running for office, please send a brief (250 words) candidate’s statement to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 15th describing why you are interested and providing some background information. A nominating committee will collect these statements and distribute them to the membership in advance of the June meeting.
Please note: if we do not have candidates for office, we will be forced to suspend the chapter. I will be stepping down as president, and Leslie Phillips will also step down as secretary/treasurer.
