Seeking Nominations for 2016 Board of Directors

In accordance with the Camden Alumni Association Constitution and By-Laws, we are seeking nominations from current active members in good standing for positions on the Camden Alumni Board of Directors for the 2016 elections.

A member in good standing is considered an alumnus who is currently up to date on dues payments. If you are interested in one of these board positions, and your dues are not up to date, just fill out the form at the bottom of this page and mail it to the address indicated along with a check for $5 to cover the 2015-2016 annual dues.

Nominations shall be by petition from the candidate seeking office. The petition must be endorsed by at least two other members in good standing for the last two years. The petition shall be submitted to the President by February 15th. You can find a nomination petition form on the Camden Alumni Association’s website at Scroll over the “About” tab on the main menu, then scroll to the “Officers & Board Members” link to bring up the sidebar link “Nomination Petition” and click on that link for the PDF file to print.

It is the responsibility of all board members to attend a majority of the board meetings held, usually numbering 4 or 5 meetings annually. The remaining duties specific to any position are available on the alumni website.

With the exception of the presidential offices, there are no term limits for any board of director positions. Incumbents can continue to run for office as long as they wish to hold the position. As of this notice, we do not know if any incumbents wish to withdraw from office, but election nominations are open to any qualified alumni willing to run for office and fulfill the duties of the position for which they are nominated.
