Hello Breakthrough Families,
As we head toward the end of the 2018-2019 school year, the time is approaching to elect SHA officers for the 2019-2020 school year. Each year, per SHA bylaws, the election of officers is overseen by an Elections Task Force made up of SHA Association members (that's you!) who are not currently serving on the SHA Executive Committee.
At present, while we have one committed Elections Task Force veteran signed on to participate, we are currently in need of at least two more volunteers to serve in this role. Responsibilities of the Elections Task Force include communicating procedures for nominations and voting, publishing the nominee lists for each SHA position, and tallying and reporting the final votes. The Elections Task Force operates over a period of approximately one month (from early May through early June), with major dates listed below:
No later than Sunday, May 12 (30 days prior to election) - SHA Elections Task Force Convenes.
No later than Tuesday, May 21 (21 days prior to election) - Elections Task Force communicates to all Association members the procedures for nominations and voting. Note: All communications regarding SHA elections are required to be made in both English and Spanish.
On Tuesday, May 28 (14 days prior to election) - Deadline for nominations. Elections Task Force communicates to Association members the nominees for each position. Note: All communications regarding SHA elections are required to be made in both English and Spanish.
On Tuesday, June 11 (Final SHA meeting of the current school year) - Election results presented at the final SHA meeting of the 2019-2020 school year.
If you would like to volunteer to participate in the Elections Task Force, please reply as soon as possible, so that the Task Force can be convened in a timely manner.
Thank you, and we look forward to the 2019-2020 SHA Elections process!
