I would like to welcome all of you who have recently joined as corporate members. Your participation and support as a grass roots member will determine the success of this new organization and its influence upon our industry across the Gulf Coast.
That said, now is the time to put forth your nominations for the Board of Directors for the first operating year of 1 July, 2010 through 30 June, 2011. Leadership at the Board of Directors level is critical to our future success and I encourage all of you to consider running for one of the seven positions. The seven persons elected to the new Board will be placed in general and the new BOD will self-elect assignment of each specific Board position; President, Treasurer, etc. There are no qualification limitations for BOD membership beyond being a corporate primary or associate member.
Corporate Members (each company) may nominate up to two nominees for the upcoming elections. To do so, please email your nominations to me as soon as possible and please, include a short bio of each nominee that does not exceed 250 words.
I will begin posting the candidates and bios beginning 1 June and elections will be held between 14 - 18 June. The primary member listed on your corporate membership must authorize the nominations and also register the votes (7 votes for 7 positions) unless that primary member has proxied same to an associate member listed on the corporate membership application. If you have any questions whatsoever, please feel free to contact me at the numbers listed below.
Please forward me nominations and bios as soon as possible. Thank you for your participation and support,
President, GCGCA Founding Directors
