Association members can submit nominations for the open board seats:
Article III, Section 2 of the association’s by-laws states the number, election, term of office and composition of the BSAA Board of Directors. Each year one-quarter of the existing board seats are up for election. An initial four-year rotation schedule was determined by the Board in 2010 to comply with the by-laws and this year marks the end of the initial rotation schedule. The board seats occupied by Ben Scharff ’95, Brian Fait ’96, and Jordan Schelling ‘11 are up for election. At least one seat will be vacant this year as Brian Fait has decided to not seek re-election. We thank Brother Fait for his dedication and service to Alpha Theta, the BSAA and Phi Kappa Sigma.
Here is the nominations and voting process:
Alpha Theta alumni must first be members of the BSAA to participate in the electoral process. BSAA members must be current with all dues (at least $18.50 in 2009/10, ’11, ’12 and ’13) to participate in the electoral process. Click here to pay your dues through Pay Pal.
