      Hello Minnesota Jaycees!

      With Fall All State & elections for our 2015 leadership just around the corner, I wanted to remind chapters of the requirements for voting delegates for presidential elections at fall convention.  As a reminder, programming vice presidents are elected by the board of directors.

      Bylaw 11, Section 2:         Delegates to Fall Convention

      Each chapter in good standing as of the last day of the previous month before the Fall Convention is entitled to a minimum of ten (10) delegates at the Fall Convention. Chapters having a membership in excess of fifty (50) as of the last day of the previous month before the Fall Convention are entitled to an additional delegate for each twenty-five (25) members, or portion thereof, in excess of the fifty (50) member base. No chapter will be entitled to more than twenty (20) delegates. Each delegate must present a valid photo ID to receive voting credentials. In order to cast a vote a person must be a member in good standing of the corporation, registered as a delegate to the convention, fully accredited and physically present on the floor. No person will be allowed more than one (1) vote.

       

      Good Standing is defined as a chapter not on provisional status and not on accounts receivable. All accounts receivable must be paid prior to a chapter's delegates being credentialed.


            POLICY 7.     GOVERNING BODIES:

      A.    DELEGATES TO THE FALL CONVENTION BY-LAW 10 SECTION 2.
      Each chapter in good standing as of the last day of the previous month before the Fall Convention is entitled to a minimum of ten (10) delegates at the Fall Convention. Chapters having a membership in excess of fifty (50) as of the last day of the previous month before the Fall Convention are entitled to an additional delegate for each twenty-five (25) members, or portion thereof, in excess of the fifty (50) member base. No chapter will be entitled to more than twenty (20) delegates. Each delegate must present a valid photo ID to receive voting credentials. In order to cast a vote a person must be a member in good standing of the corporation, registered as a delegate to the convention, fully accredited and physically present on the floor. No person will be allowed more than one (1) vote.

       

      B.    Good Standing is defined, as a chapter not at provisional status and with no accounts receivable. All accounts receivable must be paid before any chapter delegate can be credentialed.


      Lastly, there has been one adjustment made to the agenda previously sent out.  The adjustment to the times for registration & credentialing on election day was corrected to go until 12:00 PM per the policies & bylaws.

      Saturday, September 13, 2014
      7:00 - 12:00 PM Registration
      7:00 - 12:00 PM Credentialing

      As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to myself, President Joel, or ED Erin.  I do ask that if you have any questions regarding presidential elections that those be directed to President Joel or ED Erin.

      In the Jaycee spirit,
