Jackie was nominated by Karen Zoller, seconded by Evelyn Jackson
Nancy Johnson was nominated by Mike Brecht, seconded by Colleen Saskiw.
Louise asked the nominees if they would let their names stand and they agreed.
Elena Beynon arrived after voting had started and was therefore ineligible to vote.
Nancy Johnson will be the delegate from the Area Council to the PSAC convention.
Nancy Johnson nominated Jackie Nettleton for alternate delegate, seconded by Karen Zoller. There were no other nominations so Jackie Nettleton will be Nancy’s alternate.
2. Discussion of resolutions
There were five resolutions handed out and discussed.
Alice Dwornik and Colleen Saskiw were unable to stay for the discussion on the resolutions.
Jackie Nettleton made a motion to destroy the ballots seconded by Nancy Johnson: carried.
3. Discussion of the election mailout.
Most people had received their information which was mailed Friday afternoon. Some had to be mailed later as the postal machine ran out of ink. Louise said that a few had been returned to the regional office as the address was wrong so we can update our address list. No one reported any feedback either positive or negative.
