District 12 News


As reported on page 59 of the April ACBL Bulletin, this is the time of year when district elections are held for positions on the ACBL governing bodies. The District Director serves a three year term on the ACBL Board of Directors. That cycle is from Jan. 1, 2014 through Dec. 31, 2016, and that position is occupied by Dennis Carman of Plainwell, Michigan.

First and Second Alternate District Directors replace the District Director in the event of death or inability to serve. They also serve as members of the Board of Governors of the ACBL. They serve a three year term and currently the position of Second Alternate District Director is vacant. No one submitted a declaration of candidacy at last year’s election; thus the position is vacant and will be filled by the District Board of Directors at their May 16, 2015 Board meeting. Anyone interested in this position please contact Dennis Carman, Posh Gulati, or Paul Pomeroy prior to May 16, 2015 to declare their candidacy.

Each district also has three additional representatives to the ACBL Board of Governors. They also serve three year terms which begin on Jan. 1, 2016 but a declaration of candidacy must be filed with the ACBL before June 1, 2015. The person with whom the declaration must be filed is Kelley McGuire, Director of Elections for the ACBL. You may file via email; her email address is Kelley.mcguire@acbl.org. Only if there are more than three candidates for the representatives to the Board of Governors does an actual election take place; such election will be by the board members of all units within the district to select three representatives.

Please refer to the above referenced article in the ACBL Bulletin for more complete information
