Election Instructions

Each year LHDNO holds elections to select the open positions of the Board of the Directors . There are 9 Area Representatives and 4 Executive Officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer) that make up the 13 member Board.

  • Area Representatives are chosen by the resident members of the area they represent and must reside in that area*.

  • Executive Officers are chosen at large by the entire Leinkauf District*. 

 

To help insure continuity of on-going projects and knowledge of Board business, the 2 year terms of office of the Area Representatives are staggered.

 

Per the By-LawsThose Directors, representing the Odd-Numbered’ Areas (1, 3, 5, 7, & 9), will be elected to serve 2-year terms, beginning in odd years and those Directors, representing the EvenNumbered’ Areas (2, 4, 6, & 8) will be elected to serve 2-year terms, beginning in even numbered years.  

To illustrate how this works for the Board Elections in 2023 (odd year term) the Representatives from the 5 odd numbered areas (1,3,5,7,9) will be chosen to serve two years beginning in January, 2023  and ending on December 31, 2024. Those chosen will serve along with the 4 even number areas (2,4,6,8)  as these 4 finish out the last year of their term. (Note: As a result of a current vacancy, Area 6 will select a Representative to serve out the remaining term for their area.) 

In addition to the selection of the 5 odd numbered Areas and Area 6, the 4 members of the Executive Committee will be chosen to serve a 1 year term beginning in January 2023 ending on December 31, 2023. The Executive Committee, charged with the day-to-day  affairs of the organization, completes the 13 member Board of Directors.
