Vote to stagger board member terms
To submit a vote fill out the following template with pertinent information and follow voting rules as listed in Bylaws#Votes_of_the_Membership
- Write down the names of the full member(s) sponsoring the vote
- Announced: Once a vote is announced the membership can scrutinize and comment on the vote. Take comments into consideration. Announce the vote a week prior to locking down the language.
- Language locked: After some time that the vote has been announced, on or before the Thursday prior to the Tuesday the vote will occur, submit the vote to secretary at pumpingstationone.org. The vote language will not be allowed to change unless quorum is not met or the vote is proposed again.
- Voted on: This is the date the vote occurs.
The Board of Directors is the governing body of the organization. The board could benefit from being able to carry institutional knowledge across elections. In the past 2 elections this effect has occurred naturally during elections(50% of board members have been reelected and 50% have been new members). This proposal seeks to incorporate this trend into the Bylaws.
Elections for President, Secretary, PR Director, and the Director at Large not in the most recent election, will be elected on January. Elections for Vice President, Treasurer, CTO, and the Director at Large not in the most recent election, will be elected in June.

Present: This is the total number of members that voted (physically present and by proxy) and includes those that abstained from voting.
