Each year, three candidates are nominated by the Alumni Council for four-year terms as Alumni Trustees. In addition, alumni may become petition candidates by obtaining signatures from approximately 0.1% or 25 of our more than 18,000 alumni. If no nominations by petition are received, a mail ballot election is not required. This year, there are five candidates for three Alumni Trustee terms beginning on July 1 – three candidates nominated by the Alumni Council and two candidates nominated by petition.
Nominated by the Alumni Council:
George D. Baker, Jr. ‘74
Nancy Roob ‘87
Torrence D. Moore ‘92
Nominated by Petition:
Peter D. Brown ‘73
Ben S. Wu ‘73
Ballots will be mailed in February to Kirkland alumnae and Hamilton alumni. The mailing will include biographical information and personal statements from each candidate. The three candidates with the highest number of votes will be elected to fill the three vacancies for Alumni Trustee.
Candidates may use the HOLAC message board to discuss their candidacies. Election procedures developed by the Executive Committee of the Alumni Council may be found at the link at the end of this article.
The Alumni Association sincerely thanks the three alumni trustees who will retire on June 30. They are Stuart J. Hamilton ’73, Mathew M. McKenna ’72, and Julie A. North ’84. Their four years of volunteer service will be recognized by the Association at the Annual Meeting held on Saturday, June 2 at Reunions ’07.
I urge you to participate in the election. Please cast your ballot when the time comes.
Jon Hysell ‘72
Secretary to the Alumni Association
Director of Alumni Relations
