Call for Nominations for US Team Committee
The US Team Committee, part of the Contest Committee, is responsible for coordinating our participation in overseas competition. The six-member committee includes the Contest Committee Chairman, the U.S. Team Chairman appointed by the Board, the SSA Executive Director, plus three members elected by the membership of the SSA. These latter three members serve alternating three year terms such that a new member is elected, or re-elected, every year.
Current Team Committee members are:
Doug Jacobs – Chairman
Ken Sorenson – Contest Committee Chair
Phil Umphres – in substitution for an Executive Director
Rick Walters – term expires year end 2009
Sam Zimmerman – term expires year end 2010
Ron Tabery – term expires year end 2011
This year, the term of Rick Walters is up, and we thank him heartily for his service to date. Rick has indicated that he will be a candidate for re-election.
As per past practice, we will hold the election on-line to fill this position. Our by-laws state that any Director of the SSA may nominate a candidate for election. Candidates would best have a familiarity with competition soaring and an eagerness to improve our international competitiveness.
Kindly forward any nominations you might care to submit by the end of October. We will then organize the election such that results can be published at year end.
