On Sep 1st The Election Committee bid good-by to Holly Timm and Tina Vickery (the Advisory Board ex-officio EC members) and welcomed Richard Harrison (new NC).

The EC's Guidelines call for the Representative At Large to be the 2nd AB ex-officio member of the EC, however the current RAL had been found to be not in good standing and had been removed from the Election Committee by the prior NC. The EC requested the AB to choose an AB member to serve in the stead of the current RAL. After much discussion by the AB Jan Cortez was seated on the EC.

The EC sent out a call for volunteers during the month of August. Several members volunteered. After much discussion by the EC members the following volunteers were chosen.

Member at Large:
Ellen Pack - 2 year term Jan 1, 2003 - Dec 31, 2004 (To replace Linda Davenport - term ends Dec 31st)

Northeast North Central Region - 2 seats
LaRae Halsey-Brooks - 2 year term Jan 1, 2003 - Dec 31, 2004 (To replace Sara Greer - term ends Dec 31st)
Bonnie Walsh - 1 year term - Jan 1, 2003 - Dec 31, 2003 (to fill vacant position)

Northwest Plains Region
Bev Hopkins - 2 year term Jan 1, 2003 - Dec 31, 2004 (to fill vacant position)

Southeast Mid Atlantic Region - 2 seats
Elizabeth Harris - 1 year term - Jan 1, 2003 - Dec 31, 2003 (to fill vacant position)
Bettie Wood - 2 year term - Jan 1, 2003 - Dec 31, 2004 (to fill vacant position)

Southwest South Central
JoAnn Thomas - 2 year term - Jan 1, 2003 - Dec 31, 2004 (to fill vacant position)

Special Projects
David Morgan - 2 year term - Jan 1, 2003 - Dec 31, 2004 (to fill vacant position)

The list was submitted to the AB for approval and was approved. The EC asked that the new members who would be replacing departing members (as of Dec 31st) be seated early so they could become familiar with their jobs. The AB approved the early seating and all new members were seated on Sep 25th.

On Sep 8th the EC was requested to host a poll for the AB to determine the preference of the members of the Northeast North Central Region for a State Coordinator Representative AB member. This Poll will be conducted in the next quarter.

The Elections Committee appreciates the assistance of Linda Haas Davenport, former Chair EC, in the preparation of this report.

Respectfully,
Ellen Pack
Chair, Elections Committee
