PCC annual election
Our 2014 candidates are:
- Carol Binder (civic volunteer, licensed CPA, ret.), incumbent
- Julianne Lamsek (technology director, KCTS 9), incumbent
- Bruce Williams (civic volunteer, boards of directors), incumbent
- Betsy Lieberman (nonprofit leadership consultant, civic volunteer)
To give our members more time to consider how they will place their votes, we will post the candidates' biographical information and campaign statements on our website by March 30.
We'll also post brief video conversations with each candidate. They will answer questions about why they're running and what they think they would bring to board service.
The information will be posted by March 30 and will remain posted throughout the election period — April 29 through May 15.
You'll receive your printed information, including your ballot, by mail to your home inside the May Sound Consumer.
About PCC's annual election
A nine-member board of trustees directs PCC. Trustees serve three-year terms. There are three open trustee positions each year. An election is held each May to fill those positions.
The membership also selects a nominating committee in the annual election, choosing up to six members who serve for one year. The nominating committee recruits, screens and presents a slate of candidates to the membership for consideration in each annual election. The bylaws also provide a mechanism for candidates to be nominated by petition.
All active members may vote in all PCC elections. In addition to the annual elections, members may also vote on member initiatives or amendments to the articles or bylaws.
Quorums for all elections are set forth in PCC's Articles of Incorporation or Bylaws, Section V, Paragraph 4.
