Qualifications

THE USGENWEB PROJECT BYLAWS
ARTICLE VI: DUTIES/QUALIFICATIONS OF ADVISORY BOARD
Section 9



Nominees for National Coordinator shall have the following qualifications: at least one year (the twelve months immediately preceding an election) of continuous service and current activity as a member in good standing, and eligibility to vote within The USGenWeb Project.

Qualifications of nominees for State Coordinator Representative, Local Coordinator Representative, and Special Project Representative are the same with the addition that their service shall have been as a State Coordinator, Local Coordinator, or one of the various positions associated with the Special Projects, respectively.

"In good standing" is demonstrated by responding promptly to email, actively supporting researchers' efforts to find information, maintaining their website with appropriate, up-to-date content, and serving as a good example of the guidelines and standards of The USGenWeb Project.

Note: Article VI, Section 9 of the bylaws are silent on the subject of qualifications for Representative-at-Large. However, precedent and common sense, as well as the intent and spirit of the bylaws themselves, clearly mandate that a candidate for RAL have the same qualifications as candidates for National Coordinator. Therefore, candidates for Representative-at-Large must have at least one year of service as a member-in-good-standing in USGenWeb to run for the office.
