by Alain Fayolle, Past Chair of the Entrepreneurship Division Chair of the ENT Nominations Committee
As the immediate Past Division Chair, I have the honor to work with the ENT Nomination Committee to oversee the Division elections for the next executive leader of the division (PDW, aka Assistant Program Chair), a Treasurer and new Representatives-at-Large (RALs). These positions are central to the continued success and growth of the ENT Division. Those elected will help shape the ENT Division over the next few years and bring their ideas and enthusiasm to enhance the vibrancy, professionalism, and friendliness of the division.
There will be two steps in the election process (you will be notified through an email sent by the AOM Headquarters):
- STEP 1 – NOMINATIONS: January 24 – February 28
- STEP 2 – ELECTIONS: April 18 – May 18
In Step 1, all ENT members will be able to nominate (or self-nominate) members for the open positions that I mentioned: PDW Chair and Representative-at-Large. Once the Nomination Committee (me, former Past Chair Carlo Salvato, and three Representatives at Large) has reviewed the Division’s nominees for these positions, we will work diligently to finalize the slate of candidates for all positions.
In Step 2, starting from April 18, the Elections website will be opened for all the members, and this is your opportunity to be part of this important election process by voting for your preferred candidates. The voting process will end on May 18. By voting, you ensure that the elected officers will represent the preferences of our members. Elected officials will also feel that they have the mandate of the membership – a very important aspect as they take their positions to help move the ENT Division advance its mission.
I look forward to your participation in this election process. In late May, we will notify everyone of the results.
