Election Committee

A Coordinator is appointed by the EXCO to coordinate the activities of the Election Committee. This Coordinator, with the help of the Elections Committee (4-6 members including the Secretary), Regional Representatives, and other EXCO members, solicits volunteers to run for positions on the EXCO. The committee will strive to identify at least two candidates for each open EXCO seat.  The Elections Committee meets during the fall to review all nominees for the upcoming positions. If there are not enough nominees to fill all positions, a concerted effort is made to contact members again to announce openings. Once appropriate candidates have been found, a secure online voting system is put in place (e.g., SurveyMonkey) for all paid-up members to vote anonymously. PSG members have 30 days to register their vote and the voting ends 30 days before the start of the Annual Meeting. . The Coordinator then reports to the EXCO at the Annual Meeting on the results, which are published in the Spring Issue of Pacific Seabirds. The Coordinator will ask all newly elected members to attend the EXCO meeting so they can become familiar with the issues. All PSG members vote in the region where they reside, and when members move, they vote in their new area. Only members currently residing in a region may vote for the Regional Representative of that region.
