Officers of the ACWGC!

Once again we have two more Cabinet Secretary terms coming to an end.

CSA Interim Secretary Scott Ludwig and USA Secretary Mark van der Hagen terms of service end on March 24, 2014.

The election process for a new CSA & USA Cabinet Secretary(s) is now initiated.

The nomination process, commencing today March 17th and extending to Sunday, March 23rd.

This will be elections for two positions in the Cabinet.

The following Club Rules are qouted for your review;


3.3.4.1.3 In the election of the Cabinet Secretaries, all regular officers will have a vote and they may only vote for the Cabinet Secretary representing their respective military group.

3.3.4.1.4 The candidate receiving the most votes for a seat will be declared the winner. A run-off election would only be held in the case of two or more candidates receiving the same number of votes for a seat and these candidates received, individually, more votes than any other candidates for the seat. If a run-off election is needed, only the candidates involved would be included on the run-off ballot. The run-off election will be scheduled not more than one week after the conclusion of the regular election period and the voting period will be for one week.

3.3.4.1.5 Dates for nominations and voting are to be set by the Election Committee and published in the Mason-Dixon Tavern, with notice also in the Smoking Room. A maximum of one week should be allowed for nominations, two weeks for campaigning, and one additional week for voting.

3.3.4.2 Eligibility

3.3.4.2.1 Candidates for Cabinet Secretary must hold the rank of Colonel or above.

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 Cabinet Election Committee is composed of the following officers:

USA CoA: General Joe Meyer
CSA CoA: General Neal Hebert
CSA Secretary: John Newton

Please use the Cabinet Committee's email which can be found on the DoR reports page, check in the USA or CSA Roster.
Completed and verified nominations of candidates will be posted here in this thread as they are received by the Cabinet Committee.
