Elections for 2019 Officers

Neal E Baker  | Published on 10/9/2018
Dont ComplainIt is once again time to elect your UROC officers. This yearly election is the way for you to voice your opinion on how the club should proceed in the upcoming year. Please try to attend this important meeting. If you have ever considered helping out with a position in UROC, this is an excellent opportunity to do so.

If you are unable to attend the upcoming meeting but have a nomination you'd like to make, please email us at info@uroc.org with your nomination. The prospective nominee will be contacted and will be given the opportunity to accept or decline the nomination. The new officer's actual appointments will begin during the January 2019 UROC Member's meeting.

Keep in mind that anyone that is running for any of the positions will be expected to make some kind of brief statement regarding their qualifications and plans if elected during the meeting. If a nominee cannot be at the meeting but still wants to run for an office they should provide (through private messaging or email) their phone information to the president. This is so the nominee can be contacted during the elections to present their platform.

Here are the positions up for election. We will add any new nominations up to the time of the election.

President (Currently Neal Baker)  The President shall be the chief executive officer of the Corporation and shall, subject to the control of the Board of Directors, have general and active supervision of the affairs, business, officers and employees of the Corporation.  The President may sign, execute and acknowledge, in the name of the Corporation, deeds, mortgages, bonds, contracts or other instruments authorized by the Board of Directors, except in cases where the signing and execution thereof shall be expressly delegated by the Board of Directors or these Bylaws to some other officer or agent of the Corporation.  The President shall, from time to time, in his or her discretion or at the order of the Board, submit to the Board reports of the operations and affairs of the Corporation.  The President shall also perform such other duties and have such other powers as may be assigned to him or her from time to time by the Board of Directors.

Vice President (Currently Bryan Mogensen) The Vice President to act in the absence or incapacity of the President and to perform such other duties and responsibilities as the President or the Board of Directors shall assign.

Secretary (Currently Chris Baker) The Secretary shall keep the minutes of the meetings of the Board of Directors in one or more books provided for that purpose, see that all notices are duly given in accordance with the provisions of these Bylaws or as required, be custodian of the corporate records and of the seal of the Corporation and, in general, perform all duties incident to the office of Secretary and such other duties as from time to time may be assigned by the President or by the Board of Directors.

Treasurer (Currently Rob Hansen) The Treasurer shall have charge and custody of and be responsible for all funds and securities of the Corporation; receive and give receipts for monies due and payable to the Corporation from any source whatsoever, deposit all such monies in the name of the Corporation in such banks, trust companies or other depositories as shall be selected in accordance with these Bylaws and, in general, perform all duties incident to the office of Treasurer and such other duties as from time to time may be assigned by the President or by the Board of Directors.

Special Vote - Additionally, an important vote will be held during the November Meeting involving the possibility of UROC/Tripoli Utah host LDRS in 2020. Currently a fact finding committee is working on what questions and concerns the club should be aware of. This is merely the first step in the process of applying for and executing on the the biggest launch in the country. UROC/Tripoli Utah has not hosted an LDRS since 1998. If you would like your input heard for or against this proposal it is important that you attend the meeting and voice your opinion.  

The 2019 UROC officer elections will include elections for the above positions and will take place on Monday, November 12, at 7:00pm. They will be held in room N1100 of the Salt Lake County Complex (2001 S State).
