your calendars today for the upcoming annual House of Delegates
meeting to be held on Sunday, May 11, 2003 in the Grand American
Hotel, Salt Lake City Utah. The meeting will be called to order
at 8:00 A.M.
is the one day of the year that all of the elected delegates are
called to be in the same place to conduct the business of the
society. If you will not be able to attend, an elected alternate
may attend in your place. If no elected alternate is available,
an appointed alternate, who is currently an active member of AAPG
may attend in your place. Please make sure that the list of delegates,
including appointed alternates is submitted to Donna Riggs in
the AAPG office in Tulsa, no later than April 25, 2003 (fifteen
days prior to the May 11, 2003 meeting). Generally in the larger
delegations, it is the responsibility of the group chair to provide
the list of appointed alternates as necessary.
a reminder, from the Bylaws...
in office, or alternates for Delegates unable to attend meetings
of the House of Delegates may be filled or obtained from among
the candidates not receiving a sufficient number of votes for
election, and in order of the total number of votes received.
In the event alternates for Delegates are not available from the
candidates described above, then the members of a United States
Affiliated Society or an International Region who are Association
members may appoint alternate Delegates for said meeting. The
names of these appointed alternate Delegates must be received
in writing by the Headquarters office of the Association at least
fifteen (15) days prior to the meeting of the House of Delegates
for which they are appointed."
looking forward to seeing you "behind the ropes" at the Grand
America Hotel in Salt Lake City this May. Arrive early to avoid
the lines and enjoy a light breakfast and conversation with old
friends and new acquaintances! u
