Dear VACETS members,

Due to our conflict of schedule, we asked the Board to postpone VACETS election in April. Now is time to hold our annual election. According to VACETS Bylaws, all members of the Board, except the President, anh Hung Nguyen, and the President-elect, anh Hai Tran, will have to stand for election. The Bylaws also appointed me as the Chair of the Election Committee and precludes me from standing for election to provide impartiality.

You will be asked to vote for up to 5 candidates. The candidate with the most votes will be the President-elect in the new term of office.

Below is election 2003 schedule.

ELECTION SCHEDULE May 15, 2003: call for candidates - note that this date is unchanged July 31: close of call for candidates August 15: preliminary list of voters August 22: final list of voters August 25 - September 1 : Q&A with candidates September 2 - September 5 : summary by candidates September 8 - September 12 : voting September 19: results published

The vote will be through [email protected]. The results will be published once on [email protected] and then repeated on [email protected], [email protected] and on Vacets web site

Election 2003 Team:
James Lap: Chair ([email protected] or [email protected])
