FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Question: Why does ATD Tulsa hold elections in August?
Answer: ATD will hold its annual Chapter Leaders Conference (ALC) on October 11 – 13, 2018 in Alexandria, VA. Current and incoming board members are invited to attend ALC to network with fellow chapter leaders and share best practices for running an ATD chapter. We have budgeted to send our President and President-Elect to ALC. Holding elections in August will give the President-Elect two months to plan his/her attendance at ALC.
Question: Why did ATD Tulsa change from in-person to electronic (online) voting?
Answer: When we used in-person voting, the only chapter members that were given an opportunity to vote were ones that attended the meeting when the vote occurred. We changed to electronic (online) voting to give ALL chapter members an opportunity to vote over eight days. This year, all chapter members will receive an email notification, with unique links to online ballots, on the first day of voting, August 10, 2018. Elections will occur online from Friday, August 10, 2018 until Friday, August 17, 2018 at 11:59 PM (8 days).
Question: Why has ATD Tulsa expanded the amount and type of information requested on the Nomination and Eligibility Forms?
Answer: The changes were made in response to requests from chapter members to have more information about nominees to support their decision-making processes.
NOTES ON THE ELECTIONS PROCESS: The 2019 Elections Committee will review all nominations to ensure eligibility and suitability for the board positions. Nomination Form information, photos and videos for all eligible nominees will be posted on the ATD Tulsa website for review by ATD Tulsa members by July 17, 2018. If two or more candidates are running for the same board position, each will have an opportunity to give a two-minute presentation in-person or have his/her two-minute video played during the August 10, 2018 Program Meeting. To promote equal access for all chapter members, presentations will be recorded by ATD Tulsa and posted, along with videos shown, on the ATD Tulsa website following the meeting. Elections will occur electronically (online) from Friday, August 10, 2018 until Friday, August 17, 2018 at 11:59 PM (8 days).
