June 4, 2018: meeting of the General Assembly (AGM)
May 28, 2018: Deadline for a nomination.
Three members of the 2017-18 Council are stepping down. The recruitment campaign is launched. Pass the message to your teammates. You do not need to have been a captain; you must be a TFIM member during the year you sit on the Board.
To understand the functioning of TFIM read the articles in general regulations p.34 to 41 of the booklet. Here are some of them:
Article 10: Members in good standing of TFIM wishing to sit on the Board must send a request to the secretary of TFIM within 5 working days (May 28, 2018) prior to the AGM. Advocating that there are not enough nominations for the number of positions available, the AGM will accept nominations made at the AGM at the time of the elections.
Article 13.4: Elections are by secret ballot.
Article 16: List of Administrators p.37 or on the Site (CA)
Article 17: stipulates that the term of office of each director is two years and that 50% of the members are elected in even years and the rest in odd years. The Level V Officer is appointed for a 1 year position.
Article 25: The Officers of TFIM are: president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer.
Article 26: Officers are elected by and among Council members at the suspension of the AGM.
In an election, captains vote for interested members to sit on the Board of Directors when there are more nominations than the number of positions to be filled. At the AGM, there is a suspension of the assembly for the positions to be formally distributed.
