> Hello Everyone,
> It is once again time for our annual elections for the HamWAN Board of
> Directors. Here’s a quick recap of the main points for those that need a
> refresher.
>    - Board member positions last for one year.
>    - Any Supporting Member is eligible to vote for board members.
>    - Any Supporting Member is eligigle to run for a position on the board.
>    - There is no limit on the number of board members. If you feel you
>    would be valuable, you’re not taking a seat away from someone else.
>    - There is a minimum of 3 board members required by the constitution.
>    - Each board member is a separate election. IE you don’t have to
>    choose only one person to vote for, you choose Yea or Nay for all
>    individuals.
>    - Please respond to the list here with your votes. This serves as our
>    public record.
> In the above, we make use of the term Supporting Member, this is a
> specifically defined criteria in the constitution, which are individuals
> who have contributed at the Basic Level ($20/mo)(or more) for at least the
> last 6 months. Both the time and money criteria must be met to count. I
> have asked Cory who has acted as Treasurer for us for a number of years now
> to pull together the current list of Supporting Members, which are listed
> below. There have been a couple instances of employer matching this year
> that we weren’t able to attribute a source to, so if you feel that you’ve
> been missed in this list, I apologize. Please reach out and we’ll get it
> sorted. The current Supporting Members are:
>    - Bart Kus
>    - Bob Edmiston

> I would like to thank everyone, Supporting Members and not, for your
> contributions to the project. HamWAN continues to grow, new clients, EOCs,
> and sites expanding coverage are all great progress. There’s always more to
> do, but I remain impressed at what we’ve accomplished with a small core
> group of operations folks, and a dedicated set of volunteers out in the
> field (with some overlap between the two of course).
> I have spoken with each of the current directors, who have each expressed
> interest in continuing to serve if re-elected, so here is our current list
> of directors up for voting:
> Cory Johnson - Cory has graciously handled HamWAN’s finances and legal
> filings and reports for the last several years. I very much appreciate his
> continued work here making sure everything gets taken care of.
> Rob Salsgiver - Rob has taken much of the project organization tasks,
> which for the number of projects in the field we have, is often like
> wrangling a herd of cats. I very much thank him for his efforts, and I look
> forward to what this summer’s work season will bring (and has already
> started to bring in recent weeks).
> Doug Kingston - Doug does much of the work managing our inventory. As with
> above, with many projects going on, keeping track of what gear we have
> ready to deploy and what we need more of can be a significant effort. Thank
> you Doug!
> Tom Hayward - Tom has done fantastic work over the years both in
> developing several of the applications (like the management portal, abuse
> detection, and more), as well as often acts as one of our tower climbers
> for installs. Certainly invaluable.
> Nigel Vander Houwen (me) - I handle many of the administrative tasks for
> the org. Record keeping for technical aspects of the org like LoAs, handle
> any contract items, and manage things like this email/vote.
> In addition to the current directors, I’ve spoken with Bart Kus, who has
> been a director in the past, as well as started the HamWAN project. He
> bowed out last year due to personal issues, but has indicated he would be
> willing to serve this year if elected. Thank you Bart.
> For anyone else who wishes to run for the board, please send an email here
> to the mailing list announcing your intention to run. The voting period on
> your election will end 7 days after your announcement. Duties are not time
> intensive, and mostly consist of being available for occasional votes to
> approve expenses.
> This email will begin the voting for:
> Cory Johnson
> Rob Salsgiver
> Doug Kingston
> Tom Hayward
> Bart Kus
> Nigel Vander Houwen
> Thank you all for reading this rather long email, and I hope to continue
> working with everyone in this next year.
