  • SDC Elections - 2016-2018 Term

    As Elections Coordinator working with our newly-elected SDC VP Don Cox, I am posting a Call For Nominations for the positions indicated.

    This year, nominations will be for National Directors and Zone Coordinators in the following Zones: Atlantic Zone, International Zone, North Central Zone, Pacific Southwest Zone, Southeast Zone and Upper Mississippi Valley Zone. Terms of office are for two years beginning April 15th 2016. Directors are subject to a three (3) consecutive term limitation.

    This year, nominations will be for Regional Managers in the following Zones: Crossroads Zone, Northeast Zone, Pacific Can-Am Zone and South Central Zone. Terms of office are for two years beginning April 15th 2016.

    Nominees must be current SDC members living in the Zone or Region to be represented and must be willing to perform the responsibilities of the office. Incumbents who wish to continue may nominate themselves.

    A NATIONAL DIRECTOR represents the Zone at the National Board Meeting, the Annual Membership Meeting and special teleconference meetings called by the SDC President. He or she has the final authority to act in all matters concerning his or her Zone, subject to the SDC By-laws. He or she communicates with the Zone Coordinator and Regional Managers on a regular basis.

    A ZONE CORDINATOR acts as liaison between the Regional Managers and National Officers. Quarterly, he or she receives membership status report from the SDC Membership Secretary and distributes same to the Regional Managers. In the absence of a National Director for the Zone, he or she shall fill the balance of the term of office vacated. If the National Director for the Zone is unable to attend meetings, the Zone Coordinator acts as alternate. He or she coordinates scheduling of Zone Meets within his or her Zone and works with adjacent Zones to avoid any conflict in dates.

    A REGIONAL MANAGER is the contact for club members in his or her Region, which may be a state, part of a state, or combination of several states/provinces. He or she receives a quarterly report of membership changes from the Zone Coordinator and distributes it to the Chapter Presidents. He or she maintains a current list of Chapters and their officers with the Region; supports the formation of new Chapters; and encourages Chapters to hold regular meetings and publish newsletters. He or she assists the Zone Coordinators in appointing committee members if needed, solving regional problems and other duties as requested.

    Nominations are to be sent by regular mail or email NO LATER THAN DECEMBER 1st 2015 to Don Cox, 104139 Phantom Road, Meeker OK 74855 or studebaker_don@yahoo.com with a copy to Stu Chapman, 801-3000 Creekside Drive, Dundas ON L9H7S8 or schapman5@cogeco.ca. Once all nominations are received official ballots will be distributed through Turning Wheels. All ballots must be received no later than April 1st 2016.

    Vacant Regional Manager Positions

    If you live in one of the following Zones, go to "ZONE TALK" on the Forum, click on your Zone and you will see that 10 Regional Manager positions have been vacant for some time. We need candidates for all these positions.

    Crossroads, Northeast, Pacific Can-Am, South Central

    This simply means there are many SDC members who currently have no representation at the Regional Manager level. Please review the duties for RMs in post #1 in this thread to see if you could get involved and help run your Club. If you're willing to run for one of these positions, then simply let me know and I'll get you nominated.

            Is there any provision for filling vacant positions post-election?

              The By Laws that I have, not the newest, address this. "Any vacancy on the Board of Directors will be assumed by the Zone Coordinator...If the Zone Coordinator is unable or unwilling to serve, the President may appoint a temporary Director..."

                I believe what you are referring to are vacant positions for Regional Managers, not vacancies on the Board of Directors. Any Regional Manager vacancies, of which there are a few, can be filled by appointment by the SDC President. If you know of any members willing to assume such positions then please contact me. There are no vacancies currently on the Board of Directors or for Zone Coordinators.

                  Regarding the Regional Manager positions - That is an optional post and does not have to be filled (there are areas where there is little need for one, but of course any volunteer is greatly appreciated).
