Separate Elections Require Your Attention


Richardson nominated for 2004 Treasurer

The Officer Nominating Committee, whose members were selected by the Council Representatives, slated William C. Richardson for the 2004 ASHI Treasurer to fill the vacancy created by a resignation.

No petitions for this election were received by the May 24, 2004, deadline.
The election will begin on June 3, 2004, and will close on August 31, 2004. Voting Members received ballots by e-mail or mail.

2005 ASHI Officers

Attention ASHI Members: From April 30 through August 31, 2004, the Society will be accepting nomination matrix forms for the officer positions of President-Elect, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer for 2005.

Any ASHI Member in good standing may be nominated to any office. Self-nominations are permitted, and all nominees must agree to serve if elected. ASHI Nominating and Election Guidelines require that all nominations include a completed Matrix for Evaluating Nominees. The official revised matrix is available on ashi.org in the Documents section in Members Extranet. The matrix also can be obtained by contacting HQ or on Fax-on-Demand.

A petition of 10 percent of ASHI Members in good standing can cause the name of a qualified ASHI Member to be added to the ballot for a specific office.

As nominations are received at Headquarters, the staff will verify that all nominees have agreed to serve and have submitted the necessary background information, including a response to all matrix questions. Headquarters will verify the nominees’ status as ASHI Members in good standing.

Nominations will close Aug. 31, 2004, and all nomination information will be distributed to the members of the Nominating Committees.
Ballots will be mailed to the Members by Oct. 31, 2004, and the election will close
Nov. 30, 2004.

Ballots will be counted the first week in December and election results will be published in the January 2005 issue of the ASHI Reporter.

Comments and questions about the nomination process are welcome. Please contact ASHI at HQ@ashi.org.
