TEI-C Elections and 2020 Members' Meeting

Kathryn Tomasek-2
Dear friends and colleagues,

The Nominations and Elections Committee is pleased to announce the opening of the 2020 TEI-C Elections. Results will be announced at the 2020 Members' Meeting, which will be held at 11 a.m. Eastern Time (US) on Thursday, November 19. The Zoom url for the meeting will be distributed on November 1.

In 2020, TEI Members will hold an election to fill 5 open positions on the TEI Technical Council (4 for 3-year terms, 1 for a 2-year term) and 3 on the TEI Board of Directors (2 for 3-year terms, 1 for a 2-year term). We are also electing 1 new member to the TAPAS advisory board.

The following persons have been nominated and have agreed to stand as candidates for election to the TEI Technical Council, the TEI Board, and the TAPAS advisory Board. They have all supplied a statement covering two aspects:
  1. a candidate statement in which they discuss their reasons for wishing to serve on the Board, TAPAS or Technical Council and what their particular goals would be.
  2. a biographical description focusing on their education, training, research, etc., relevant to the TEI.

A Note on Voting

Voting will be conducted via the OpaVote website, which uses the open-source balloting software OpenSTV for tabulation. OpenSTV is a widely used open-source Single Transferable Vote program.

TEI Member voters, identified by email address, will receive a URL at which to cast their ballots. Upon closing of the election, all voters who cast a vote will be sent an email with a link to the results of the election, from which it is also possible to download the actual final ballots for verification. Individual members may vote in the TEI Technical Council elections. The nominated representative of institutions with membership may vote for both the TEI Board and TEI Technical Council.

Voting closes on November 16, 2020 at 23:59 Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HAST) as it offers the latest global midnight.

With best wishes,
