FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NOMINATIONS OPEN FOR ARVC BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Two seats board positions up for election this year
(DENVER) The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) is seeking nominations to fill two positions on the ARVC Board of Directors, determined by election at the national conference in November.
Area 1 Representative Peter Brown, OHC, owner of Lone Oak Campsites, and Area 5 Representative Patty Claney, owner of Big Creek RV Park, will see their terms end this year. ARVC members in these voting areas only will elect new representatives to those seats during the election this fall, with candidates set to serve 3-year terms beginning on November 10, 2019.
Area 1 includes Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Area 5 includes Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Texas.
Nominees cannot be from states where current area representatives are located. For Area 1, a nominee may not be from Maine as there is already a sitting board member from this state. For Area 5, a nominee may not be from Colorado as there is already a sitting board member from this state. The selection process is underway, with ARVC members allowed to nominate themselves or another member. Those interested in nominating must submit the appropriate nomination documentation to Paula Horwitz, executive director education and events, no later than July 9, 2019 for compilation and submission to the Nominations and Elections Committee.
All nominations must be accompanied with the signatures of fifteen (15) Voting Members from the nominee’s voting area. It is the responsibility of the person making the nomination to ensure that all fifteen (15) signatories hold current and valid Voting Member status with ARVC, as defined in Article IV, Section 1 of the ARVC bylaws. A link to this signatures form is available for download to assist in gathering signatures.
The Nominations and Elections Committee will verify this upon submission. Petition signatures from non-voting members shall not be considered as valid and will not be counted, and may therefore render a petition invalid. In such cases, nominees will be notified by the Nominations and Elections Committee within fourteen (14) days of submission, and will have an opportunity to rectify the shortfall, subject to the submission deadline of July 9, 2019.
