2009 USA Triathlon Election
Voting for the 2009 USA Triathlon Election commences August 1 and concludes October 1. For more information on the 2009 Election, including candidates and platforms, FAQs, proposals and a sample ballot, visit our election information page.
Dear USA Triathlon Member:
The 2009 USAT General Election is upon us.
Because electronic voting reduces costs and increases the overall efficiency of the election process, USAT, for the third year, has partnered with Votenet.com, a company handling many public and non-profit groups to administer their voting needs.
For 2009, you will be asked to vote on up to three specific elements. One is for the National Board candidate running from your respective region. The second is for the Regional Council member running from your respective region. The third is for proposals that our organization has asked for you to accept that will help change a number of issues with our bylaws. In some regions, due to staggered terms, there may not be a National or Regional seat up for election.
On August 1, the election officially begins with the online ballot process. If you are unable to vote electronically, please call Sharon Carns at (719) 955-6020 after August 1 to receive a paper ballot. Once you have made your request, your ability to vote electronically will be automatically blocked to ensure that only one vote is cast.
Any USAT member in good standing as of 11:59 p.m. Mountain Daylight Time on June 30 may vote. Members joining USAT after that date will not be able to participate until the 2010 Election.
Ballots must be submitted by October 1, 11:59 p.m. Mountain Standard Time. This should give you ample time to research the candidates from your region as well as the proposals submitted and then make an informed decision. To help you, USAT has put together this informative special section and has posted this information on our 2009 Election page.
Our elections are vital to the continued success of this membership organization as our process places critical responsibility on the shoulders of every member. Without a solid governance structure helping to define our long-term strategic vision, USAT’s staff could not embrace our vision and develop the day-to-day support demanded by our constituencies.
Thank you for your continued support of USA Triathlon. Please be sure to remember to vote before October 1.
F. Skip Gilbert
USA Triathlon CEO/Executive Director
