Call for Proposed Candidates for Vice Chair, Eastern and Central Region Trustees

 

Section 4.5(b) of the Bylaws states as follows: “Any regular member may propose candidates to the nominating committee to be considered for the positions of the chair, vice chair and regional trustee.” Section 2.1 of the Bylaws defines a regular member as a graduate of the United States Naval Academy (the “Academy”) and former midshipmen who did not graduate from the Academy, after the last Academy class of which they were a member has graduated and who, in each case, have applied for membership and have been admitted.

 

In May 2020, the serving vice chair, MajGen Leo V. Williams ’70, USMCR (Ret.), will end his second and final term. The Eastern Region Trustee, CDR William D. Squires ’75, USN (Ret.), and the Central Region Trustee, CDR Richard A. Cataldi ’69, USN (Ret.), have completed their first terms and are now seeking re-election.

 

A nominating committee has been formed pursuant to Section 4.5(a) of the Bylaws to find and recommend to the Board a single candidate for the vice chair and one or more nominees for the two regional trustee positions. 

 

Regular members are encouraged to propose candidates to the nominating committee to be considered for the Vice Chair, the Eastern Region Trustee and the Central Region Trustee positions.

 

Proposed candidates must be regular members of the Alumni Association who have expressed a willingness to serve as a trustee. Proposed candidates for the regional trusteeships must reside in the region they intend to serve.

 

Members who want to propose a candidate may do so by sending their submissions to:

            Nominating Committee

            247 King George Street

            Annapolis, MD  21402-5068
