Short Circuit

Vote for your Natinal Board of Directors

(July 28, 2010)

Ballots for the annual election of members to serve on the SBE national Board of Directors were mailed at the end of July.  Please vote for candidates for the four officer positions and six of the twelve director seats. The Board consists of 17 members, including four officers, 12 directors and the immediate past president.

The Nominations Committee was chaired this year by Board member Jim Leifer, CPBE, Director of Engineering and IT of Clear Channel Communications, South Florida.  His committee prepared a list of candidates who have agreed to commit their time and resources to serve, if elected. 

The official ballot and candidate profiles were sent via USPS First Class mail by July 27th to all voting members of SBE. That includes Regular, Senior and Fellow members and the voting member representative of each of SBE’s Sustaining Member companies.

We encourage you to take the time to review the descriptions and opinions of the candidates, make your selections and return the ballot to the SBE National Office so that it arrives no later than Thursday, August 26. Use the special election return envelope provided. Allow at least five business days for your ballot to reach the National Office. Allow two weeks if you are outside the United States.  Please mail early. Each year a number of ballots arrive after the election is over and consequently cannot be included in the tabulation.

The ballots will be tabulated the night of August 26th by the official Board of Tellers consisting of members of Chapter 25 in Indianapolis and central Indiana. Candidates will be notified the following day of the results. Those elected will take office following an induction ceremony held during the SBE National Meeting on October 27, in Madison, WIs.  The National Meeting is being held in conjunction with the Wisconsin Broadcasters Clinic, sponsored by SBE Chapter 24 of Madison and the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association.

Information about each candidate and their responses to questions about the Society is included in the official ballot packet. If you don’t receive a ballot by August 5, please contact Holly Essex at the National Office at (317) 846-9000 or hessex@sbe.org.
