At the April Representative Council meeting the official call for candidates began the process by which SWEA elections will take place. Offices up for election this year include; President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer, all positions receive a stipend for duties performed and will serve a three year term. Responsibilities of these positions can be found in Section 4 of the SWEA Constitution. Although not up for election the remaining Executive Board members serve at the behest of the President and therefore will be named at the General Body meeting or a later date dependent upon commitments. According to the Constitution anyone wishing to run for an elected office must be nominated at the May Representative Council meeting and have a platform/vision to be shared as a 2-3 minute oral presentation and then will be uploaded to the SWEA web page from notes taken by the Secretary and Communications chairs. The election will be conducted on-line with emails sent to all SWEA members June the 7th and reported out at the General Body meeting the following day. Uncontested Offices and vacated positions will follow the Bylaws outlined in the Constitution.
