Pursuant to Article IV(E)(2) of the Bylaws, this is the official notice to members of the results of the Nominations Committee for the 2015 Alice B. Toklas LGBT Democratic Club Board of Directors.  A vote to approve these nominations will occur at our General Membership meeting on January 12, 2015. The meeting takes place at the LGBT Center at 6:30 pm in room 301.The general membership must vote to approve the Board by a vote of 50% plus one. At the same time, the Board’s nomination for male Co-Chair will be made. At our November 2014 Board meeting, the Board nominated Brian Leubitz to be Co-Chair. We will ask for any further nominations during our general membership meeting on January 12, 2015 and proceed to ask the general membership to approve the nomination of our next male Co-Chair.

Thanks to the members of the Executive Committee who serve as our Nominations Committee for their work to develop the following slate of candidates for the Board.  This year, the Nominations Committee included Zoe Dunning, Ron, Flynn, Brian Leubitz, Martha Knutzen, Reese Isbell, Juan Cerda, Curt Robinson, Zoe Dunning, David Augustine, Micah Hilt, Thomas Li, Adam Taylor, Lou Fisher, and Brian Leubitz. The Emeritus Board member who served this year was Lisa Williams.

We are grateful to have many returning Board members for the coming year. Some board members will be leaving the board due to personal commitments. To Julian Chang, Christopher Vasquez, and Daniel Frattin, we thank you for your service – you will continue to be a valued part of the Alice family.

We have also nominated David Augustine and Martha Knutzen to join the Emeritus Board. Both have given years of valuable service and leadership to our club.

We have combined the Communications and Membership teams to bring increased energy to the two committees, which work closely together.

We have asked several members of our board to accept positions as committee Co-Chairs, with an eye toward balancing our need for continuity with the development of new leaders for Alice.

This year we again had a high quality pool of men and women from which to select new board members. It was a difficult decision as we had more applications than openings, and we are proud of the talent this new cohort represents. The committee is excited to nominate the following individuals to join our board: Izabelle Doublin, Conor Johnston, Gary McCoy, Jacquelyn Omotalade, Megan Siems, and Mawuli Tugbenyoh. We are also proud to recommend the return of Amy Moore to our board.

Thank you to Ron Flynn for serving as male co-chair these past two years – he now becomes Immediate Past Co-Chair and volunteered to become our Parliamentarian as well.

Finally, there are three non-board members who are nominated to join Stan Sarkisov as “Member Affiliates” associated with particular committees: Aaron Kahn, Marilyn Murrillo and John Weber.
