2020 GOLD COAST ELECTIONS ANNUAL MEETING: VENUE UPDATE
The Annual Meeting will be held at 10 am at Graziano's located at 394 Giralda Avenue, Coral Gables. Due to COVID social distancing safeguards, we could not secure any other place but will be sitting outdoors.
The Board of Directors of the Gold Coast Division is pleased to announce the candidates to its upcoming election. Six candidates responded to the Nominating Committee’s request to provide answers to a questionnaire by midnight of June 29,2020. Candidates’ information and answers were posted to the Division website.
Article VIII, Section 2 of the by-laws stipulates that a mailing will be sent to the membership announcing the members running for office; however, to limit physical contact and as in prior elections, the Board announced the names of members running for office on the website and through a USA Fencing Association email blast.
The elections will take place on July 18, 2020. As per Article VII, Section 6 of the by-laws, proxy votes will be allowed. All proxies will be issued by the Secretary of the Division as needed. If the original division proxy is lost and replaced, it must be verified by Secretary as valid. Each proxy will have a distinct number corresponding to each member eligible to vote. Please contact Eugenio Cano, Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org for further details, or to request your proxy.
To limit physical distancing, proxies may be returned digitally, or handed in at the meeting.
