Andrea Bach was originally posted
and published as a 2013 candidate for the 2013-2014 Director-Region 3
post. She has since accepted a job in Arizona and will be moving from
Region 3. So, she has withdrawn as a candidate for Director-Region 3.
Also on the AACE Nominating
Committee’s original slate of candidates was and is Mark Cundiff, PSP.
As of this writing, he is now running unopposed as a candidate for
Director-Region 3, unless a candidate or candidates is added by
The AACE Bylaws provide in Article
II, Nomination and Election of Officers and Directors, Section 4: “Other
nominations for the office of Director or the office of an Officer of
the Association may be made by petition signed by at least twenty (20)
Members in good standing. The petitioners shall be responsible for (a)
obtaining in writing the agreement of the nominee to serve if elected,
(b) securing the biographical data of the nominee, (c) submitting the
petitions, the agreement, and the biographical data to be received by
the Vice President-Administration no later than December 15th of each
year. Each candidate’s name and biographical data shall be made
available to the membership no later than December 31st of each year."
If members are interested in adding
a Director-Region 3 candidate or candidates by petition, the petition
needs to read: “We the undersigned AACE members in good standing
nominate by petition (insert name) to be added as a candidate for the
2013-2014 election for the office of Director-Region 3 as outline in the
AACE Bylaws, Article II--Nomination and Election of Officers and
Directors, Section 4.
Any petition or petitions must be
submitted along with a candidate's signed statement agreeing to serve if
elected, biographical data, goals for office and a photo. The petition,
signed agreement, bio/goals and photo must all arrive at AACE
Headquarters on or before midnight on Saturday, Dec. 15.
Compliance with the bylaws
provisions will then be checked and certified and any new candidate or
candidates announced to the AACE membership no later than Dec. 31.
Readers who previously viewed the AACE website, or read
the online December Source magazine, or who go back and view the
December Source will still see Bach listed as a candidate. However, her
name will not appear on the 2013 ballot.
