This year, for the second time, the North American Catalysis Society (NACS) will be using on-line balloting as the only way to vote for Directors-at-Large. We have contracted with a firm that is experienced in on-line voting to ensure the accuracy and confidentiality of the process. The elections are scheduled for March 18th to April 5th. You will be receiving an email message on March 17th with your username, unique password and a link to a restricted voting webpage. The subject headline is “NACS Elections for Directors-at-Large”. Please don’t delete this email until you cast your vote. If you have a problem receiving this email, then you need to contact Edrick Morales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The web log-in page will have instructions on how to use your electronic ballot with links to technical assistance in case you have difficulty with the log-in and PDF documents with the proposed amendments and revised version of the by-laws.
You can cast your vote starting on March 18th at 12:01 am. The voting webpage will be held open to those members of NACS (including students) who reside within North America. Background information for each candidate will be available on the ballot site with a hyperlink associated to each candidate’s name. On the ballot website, you will be selecting only six (6) or less members from the slate of 11 candidates for the office of Director-at-Large and one vote to approve or not approve the amendments to the by-laws. The top six candidates will be elected to office if the amendments to the by-laws are approved; otherwise, the top four (4) candidates will be elected.
Voters will need to log back in and complete the ballot from scratch if they log-out or close the browser window without submitting their ballot. Your password will be deactivated after you record your vote.
