Elections has been hard at work getting ready for the upcoming 2015 OTW Board Election! A big part of that has been scheduling each of the events that comprise the season. Click here for a timeline of Elections events.
We’re also excited to announce that the 2015 Election will be contested—that is, the members of OTW will vote on which candidates fill the seats.
We do not have a set deadline for membership to be eligible to vote yet, but if you begin or renew your membership by the end of September, you should be in the clear!
If you have or will have served nine months as an OTW staff member by November 1, 2015, and you would like to declare your candidacy, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your legal name and a statement that you are over 18 by September 11, 2015 at 11:59 PM UTC.
More information on how our process works will arrive, along with an announcement of the candidates, in two weeks, so be on the look out for that. We’re looking forward to a great elections season, and we hope to see you there!
