Please familiarize yourself with the KDMA Constitution, which contains information on “active membership,” selection of executive officers, and a description of each position’s duties and responsibilities. Below is an excerpt from the KDMA Constitution regarding the Selection of Officers.
Article IV – Officers
Section 1: Selection of Officers
Interested candidates should submit an application (see “KDMA Executive Officer Application” for details) for a position. Election of Executive Board officers will require a majority vote from the Association members. If a candidate fails to receive a majority of votes, a run-off election will be held between the two top candidates who received the most votes. Elections will be held in February and newly elected or incumbent officer(s) will transition into (or continue) their roles in March. Subsequent elections will take place in August with either the newly elected or incumbent officer(s) beginning (continuing) their service in September.
The term of office will depend on the position held. For example, the Association president and vice president positions will be held for no less than 1-year (starting in March). All other positions will be held for no less than 6-months on a rolling basis. Together, the officers shall comprise the Executive Board.
This Executive Board can also appoint other chairs if required through a majority vote (of said Executive Board). The Executive Board shall meet every month on an agreed upon day and time. If officers do not comply with the purposes or responsibilities entrusted to them, their position may be revoked, by a majority vote of the Executive Board. The officer then holds the right to present their case in front of the whole organization to maintain their position through a majority vote.
