And now for (some of) the news you've all been waiting for: the details of the OTW's 2012 Election Season.
We have great news for you: three fabulous people are joining the OTW Board! Because only three candidates came forward, we won't be holding a contested election this year. However, they are all awesome and eminently qualified for Board service. Without further ado, let's introduce them (in alphabetical order by given name).
* Andrea Horbinski
* Eylul Dogruel
* Franzeska Dickson
We would like for all of you to get to know them and to ask questions about the experiences and ambitions they bring to the table. To this end, we'll be hosting a chat soon - we'll announce the time later this week. Alas, the tea and coffee we can provide will only be virtual, but you are welcome to bring your own mug to the computer. We will also be posting their candidate biographies and manifestos soon.
Although we didn't get to hold a competitive election this year, we are delighted to have attracted three such marvelous new Board members. Welcome, Andrea, Eylul and Franzi!
There will be another election next year, when three board members' terms expire (Francesca, Kristen and Ira).
If there's anything we didn’t cover here that you're concerned about, or if you want any more information, please respond to this with any questions, comments, or objections you may have. You can reach the Elections Officer by using the Elections contact form; you can reach the whole Board by using the Board contact form.
