Announcement–CALA Southeast Chapter 2018 Officer Election Result

Dear CALA Southeast Chapter members,

The 2017 CALA Southeast Chapter Nomination Committee would like to announce that the Southeast Chapter has finished its election for two officer positions, and the election result is attached to this email.

The CALA Web Committee sent out election ballots via email to 32 members. The result we received indicates that there are 11 votes for each position, thus a 34.4% support for each.

According to the CALA Bylaws, Article VII, Section 4, “The nominee who receives the largest number of votes for any office shall be elected.” Therefore, the result is valid and the new officers shall start their service term immediately.

The Nomination Committee would like to announce that Jia He is the 2018-2019 Vice President/President-Elect, and Xiying Mi is the 2018-2020 Treasurer. Congratulations to both candidates!

Thank you everyone who participated in the election!
