2016 ASCRA Board of Directors Election Certification -- 08 May 2016

Pursuant to the ASCRA Bylaws, at the direction of the Secretary, a Ballot Tabulation Committee counted the ballots for the ASCRA Board of Directors election to terms commencing at the next board meeting, June 4, 2016.

All six incumbent directors were nominated to the ballet. A total of 15 ballots were received by the Secretary, 13 via Email and 2 via postal mail. One ballot voted on only five of the six nominees. One write-in candidate was submitted on two ballots but was not elected at this time. Eight (66.7%) of the 12 current directors submitted ballots. Five elected directors received 100% of the ballots cast. One director received 93.3% and one other received 93.8% of votes cast.

The following are elected to the 2018 director's class (2016-2018 term):

Aaron Beebe, KD8JQJ, Oak Ridge, TN
Chuck Brady, KAØGFC, Boonville, MO
Ed Briley, KDØMEI, Independence, MO
Larry Ragan, NØAIX, Gladstone, MO
Mike Thayer, KMØS, Jefferson City, MO
T.J. Redding, KB5EAG, Omaha, NE

Continuing on the board is the 2017 directors' class (2015-2017 term):

Chuck Palmer, NØONN, Independence, MO (Treasurer)
Doug Shaw, WAØEMX, Raytown, MO (Secretary & Trustee)

Many thanks to all our nominees who volunteered to serve ASCRA as directors of the 2018 Class (term expiring in spring of 2018). All hands are needed to assist in making the week of our 2016 International ASCRA Meeting this June (in conjunction with the Community of Christ World Conference) a successful one.

We also gratefully thank those who have or will send their generous donations to support ASCRA expenses as we continue to improve the IHQ remote base and repeater stations in the coming year.

Respectfully submitted,

2016 ASCRA Ballot Tabulation Committee
