The annual Prime Timers elections for the Board of Directors occurs every January.  The next election is at the Monthly Membership Meeting on January 12, 2019.

Three board members are leaving by the end of this year, and we now have three new candidates that have indicated their intention of running for a position on the board, so it appears we will have a full complement of seven members.

A ballot will be emailed (or postal mailed) to all active members in December.  The ballot will detail each candidate with a short description of their experience and how they would contribute.  Here is a sample of one candidate’s description from last year’s ballot:

 ______ [Name]: Experience: “ One Year! (Wow how time flies). I’m  loud, not shy, I’m, bold, not afraid to meet a stranger and always looking for new friends. (Some things never change!)” Involvement:  [Name] and I are here to help serve the gay community and by being part of the PTSL is our way of serving. Goals/Ideas: Reach out to any and all who feels they are missing a connection in life. We are a people who care!”

Write-in candidates are also allowed on the ballot.

Filled-out ballots will need to be received at the beginning of the Monthly Membership Meeting on January 12, 2019.  The emailed ballots can be replied to with the voter’s selections, or can be printed and then either postal mailed or brought to the meeting.  The postal address is Prime Timers, 87 Grasso Plaza #241, St. Louis, MO  63123.

At the meeting, all ballots will be counted and results will be announced.  The candidates with the top seven votes will become the new board members.  Following the meeting, the new board will meet and decide which candidates will be the officers (President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, Webmaster).

It’s important for the members to participate in this election process and have a voice in the direction of our Prime Timers chapter.

Thank you for your interest!
