[npoc-voice] Upcoming NPOC elections
Dear NPOC members, On Monday, you should receive a ballot for The Not-for-Profit Operational Concerns Constituency (NPOC)'s elections for officers. The Election will begin on March 5, 2012 and conclude on March 19, 2012 at 11:59:59 ET. The slate is below: NPOC Chair * Alain Berranger * Amber Sterling NPOC Vice Chair * Lori Schulman Secretariat * Amber Sterling Membership Committee Chair * Klaus Stoll Policy Committee Chair * Judy Branzelle Communications Committee Chair (No nominees received - Please write-in the name of a candidate) * ___________ Please insert name Please be certain to check your email on Monday (including your junk mail folder) for the ballot from ICANN. On a personal note, since Amber indicated she needs a break from the role of NPOC Chair and she stated would strongly prefer to be elected as Secretariat (even though she graciously accepted the nomination for Chair), I am compelled to take this opportunity to publicly share my appreciation for Amber Sterling's hard work and the many long hours she spent as Chair helping to establish NPOC! As such, I am pleased to support the election of Alain Berranger as Chair of NPOC and encourage NPOC members to do the same. The slate above reflects a good mix of representation from various types of nonprofits/NGOs with a mix of international representation. Thanks again to Amber for her previous leadership and her assistance during NPOC's transition of leadership. I encourage all NPOC members to vote by March 19th! The coming year will be very exciting!
