Board Elections 2015!
Hello all hEY Members!
It is time to hold our 2015 hOur Exchange Ypsilanti Board Member Elections. This is our first election so we are excited to get everyone involved! Any hEY Member can run to become a board member. This year there are three (3) open seats. Members who are elected will be chosen for a specific position by the board such as treasurer, president, secretary, or director. You will NOT be running for a specific position only for a seat on the board.
Our Board members create policies and procedures or delegate the creation of policies and procedures for hEY. We hold monthly board meetings. We have been meeting every second Thursday of every month at 6:15pm. This may continue depending on board member schedules. Board Members need to attend at least 9 of the 12 meetings a year and positions are held for two years. Then after two years you will need to run again for your seat. If you are interested in a nomination, please read Article V. in our hEY By-laws here: http://hourexchangeypsi.org/…/…/hEYBylawsapproved-9-2014.pdf
All nominations have to be received by e-mail or by the paper nomination form by 12:00am on April 23rd, 2015. You can download the form here:http://hourexchangeypsi.org/…/uploads/hEY-2015-Board-Nomina…

You must be an active member of hOur Exchange Ypsilanti to be considered for a seat on the board.
Please include along with the name a brief statement of why you would like to be a hEY Director and a brief description of your qualifications. We strongly encourage you to include a head-shot to help people recognize you.
Elections will be held electronically from April 23rd to May 22nd. You will also be able to download a paper ballot and send it in to us. We will send you the links through e-mail on the 23rd of April. We will also have these available on our website. All paper ballots have to be received by May 20th, 2015. We will hold paper ballot voting at our Annual Picnic/Meeting on May 23rd, 2015 starting at 1:30 until 3:00. Election results will be announced at 3:15pm at the picnic and will be posted on Facebook and our software shortly thereafter.
Thank you everyone for another great year of time banking. With-out the help of the community and our hEY Members we would not be where we are today. Let’s make this election fun and exciting for everyone involved. Please let us know if you have any questions. Good Luck!
