January - 2005: The USGenWeb Election Committee issued a call for two volunteers who would like to serve on the committee.

USGenWeb Project Election Committee contacted all State Coordinators and Archive/National Special Project Coordinators to request current membership lists for their respective Projects.

The Election Committee was directed by the Advisory Board to ". . . conduct a poll of the membership to establish the wishes of the membership as to whether one or multiple logos should be used by the Project." The Elections Committee accepted registrations for this poll from January 12, 2005 thru January 26, 2005.

The Election committee presented a draft proposal for the wording of the upcoming Logo poll. The Advisory Board voted in late January for the following wording:

"(1) Should The USGenWeb Project have only one official logo design, which each member site shall be required to display prominently, or should there also be additional approved logo designs from which members can choose? One Logo Multiple Logos

(2) If this poll determines that most respondents want multiple logo choices, then how many alternative logo designs should be available to choose from?(in addition to the one "official" logo): 1, 2, 3, more than 3"
