Gentlemen of the ACWGC,

General Joe Meyer is currently serving as Interim Union Chief of the Army, filling in for General DS Walter's term after his resignation last November. It is time to elect a Union Chief of the Army for a full 2 year term. I encourage all eligible Union officers to begin considering whether or not you wish to run for the CoA position or perhaps nominate someone else for it. Club Rules concerning this election are:

3.3.4.2 Eligibility

3.3.4.2.1 Candidates for Cabinet Secretary or Club President must hold the rank of Colonel or above. To be eligible for a CoA position, a member must hold the rank of Lieutenant General or above in their respective Army.

3.3.4.1.2 In the election of a CoA, only members at the rank of Lieutenant General or General at the time the election Voting period begins may vote for the CoA representing their respective military group. The Election Committee will use the Department of Records to verify ranks to determine eligibility. Nominations for the CoA may be made by any regular officer subject to the restrictions in Rule 3.3.4.2.2, below.

3.3.4.2.2 Candidates must be nominated by two other members before being placed on the ballot. Other than the President, nominating officers must be from the same military group as the candidate being nominated.

3.3.4.2.3 Nominations are to be submitted to the entire Cabinet.Nominations must include a statement that the member nominated agrees to serve, if elected. Verification of nominations will be by using the email address the nominator uses to submit the nomination. The email address that the nominator uses must be the email address of record in the Department of Records. The Election Committee will attempt to contact, via email, any nominator whose email address is different than the Department of Records in order for that member to have to opportunity to correct the address held in the Department of Records. Any addresses not corrected by the end of the nomination period will not be valid and that nomination will be disregarded.


The time frame for the Union CoA elections will be as follows:

Nominations open for 1 week beginning at 12:01 am PST, January 8th, 2011
Campaign period, if needed, open for 1 week beginning at 12:01 am PST, January 15th, 2011
Voting period, if needed, open for 1 week beginning at 12:01 am PST, January 22, 2011

Prior to the voting period, an email will be sent from the Eelction Committee to all eligible Union voters, as determined using the Dept of Records. If you wish to vote and believe you are eligible, please ensure your records and rank are up to date prior to the voting period commencing.

The Election Committee is comprised of the following Cabinet officers, email follows:

Gen. Jeff Laub (Chair) jdlaubATmsn.com
Gen. Bob Weir ra_weirATcomcast.net
Gen. Blake Strickler stricklerblakeATyahoo.com

Thanks!

The nomination period has closed, with the only nominee being General Joe Meyer.

Pursuant to Club Rules, General Meyer is elected by acclimation to the Union Chief of the Army office.

Congrats, General Meyer!

3.3.4.1.7 In the event only one candidate has been nominated by the end of the nominating period, that candidate will be elected by acclimation and no vote will be necessary.

REgards,

The Election Committee

Thank you, gentlemen! It was an extremely tiring election campaign aand I am glad that it has come to a conclusion. All of that riding about to the outlying commands for speechifying has left me dry of tongue and mentally exhausted. I should now seek to correct my condition by fully draining each glass that I can reach! :D

A bit late to this, but congratulations, Joe. Or my sympathies? Anyway thank you for your willingness to serve.

I think I said it before, but I'll say it again: The word is "acclamation" rather than "acclimation" (which means getting used to a foreign climate, which doesn't really apply to Joe since he has already been on the cabinet :D).

It's a typo in the rules and the cabinet should use its authority to simply correct it.
