Please give some thought and prayer to whom you would like to see leading our Association. It is important for the life of our Association. Nomination forms are available from the Secretary for the position of President and Vice President and Media Officer for election in 2022.
Our secretary , Mary Holloway, will end her term of office at the Nairobi Business Meeting and Deacon Jim Martin from St Louis, USA will become the new secretary.
During the IACAC Annual Business Meeting held at Melbourne Conference the new Executive Board was elected and installed.
President: Rev. Pierre de Mareuil (CDG, FR) Vice-President: Deacon David Reiser (CLT, USA) Treasurer: Rev. Romeo Dabee (JFK, USA) Media Officer: Rev. Stephan Pfenninger Schait (ZRH, CH) Secretary: Miss Mary Holloway (MEL, AUS)
Nominations were also received for the election of a new Secretary at the Nairobi Conference in 2020. Deacon Jim Martin for St Louis was nominted by Deacon David Reiser and seconded by Canon Liz Hughes. As his nomination was the only one received, Deacon Jim will be elected unopposed as Secretary in Nairobi.
A reminder that nominations for the positions of president and vice president will be received from the floor during the Annual Business Meeting in Melbourne. A member does not have to be present at the Annual Business Meeting to be nominated but it is desirable that members have an opportunity to learn about them and what they can offer the Association. Only 2019 financial members are eligible to vote in the election and members who are not present at the Annual Business Meeting can vote by proxy. Proxy voting application forms are available from the Treasurer. Any member who is holding proxy vote for another member may only hold a maximum of two proxy votes.
We ask members to think and pray on this matter. It is important for the life of our Association. Nomination forms are available from the Secretary for the position of president and vice president for election in 2019 and the receipt of nominations for secretary to be elected in 2020.
It has been a great honor and privilege for me to have been Treasurer for the last 10 years and get to know each and every one of you even better because of this position on the Board. I have seen many different Board members come and go that I have had the privilege to work with and get to love. This will be my last year on the Board as I will be retiring and looking forward to my next adventure in life. So, I am asking each and every one of you to continue supporting the new treasurer so that IACAC will continue to grow.
