Well, the plan was to hold elections this week via Survey Monkey. But, we’ve had a few questions about why elections are held before the meeting. Some folks feel like they’d like to participate in a meeting before jumping in as a new co-moderator.
So, before we open elections, Megan and I wanted to see if there was a general feeling as to whether we should put them off until May.
Here’s some food for thought:
- Putting elections off would make it possible for candidates to meet other members in Denver
- But, not all those interested in leadership will be able to make it to the annual conference
- One of the unique things about ArLiSNAP has been that all of our activity isn’t concentrated at the annual meeting, which makes us more accessible to students and young professionals who might not have support to travel to the conference.
Please post your thoughts in the next day or two so we can make a final decision on the possibility of delaying the election.
