Congratulations to the candidates, and thanks to all STC members who expressed interest in running for office.

Nominations by Petition
The bylaws also provide for the nomination of candidates by petition of 10 percent of the voting members (see Article VIII, Section 2, Part D). Eligible individuals who seek nomination by petition must submit the required materials to the Society office by 16 December 2014. Contact Elaine Gilliam for additional information on signature collection.
The final slate for the 2015 election then will be published and will include candidates appearing on the preliminary slate as well as any qualified individuals who are properly nominated by petition and approved by the Board of Directors.
The Society election is scheduled to open on 9 March and close on 20 March 2015. To be eligible to vote, members must have paid their dues by 15 January 2015.
Detailed information about the candidates and access to an online forum for posing questions to the candidates will be provided soon.
