Important request from Susan Greene (’68) and the Alumnae Association Board. Your vote is needed!
I am contacting you today because your help is needed again on a vital (but relatively straightforward) task. Each year the Alumnae Association of Smith College’s Nominating Committee presents a slate of nominees for officers, directors of the AASC, Alumnae Trustees and for members of the Nominating Committee. Ordinarily the slate would have been approved by voice vote at the annual in-person meeting of the Alumnae Association at Reunion II right after the Alumnae Parade. As both reunion weekends were modified virtual events due to COVID-19, the annual meeting did not take place.
We have designed an alternative method for approving the slate and will be launching an online vote that will open to the alumnae community on Friday, August 7. You may find more information about the vote here. Alumnae will receive email notification of this, and the vote will stay open until Sunday, August 23. To maintain compliance with the AASC bylaws we need to have a quorum of 300 participants in the vote. This is where you come in: we are asking for your help in advance, to commit to voting, and to promote this activity within your networks once the vote opens on August 7. Your participation and promotion of the vote will be a significant element in our progress toward a goal of 300 participants.
Once again, thank you for helping us finalize this important piece of work in a most unusual year. If you have any questions please direct them to Amanda Rivera Lopez, Executive Director of the AASC and Regional Networks at email@example.com.
All best wishes for good health,
Susan Greene ’68
President of the AASC Board of Directors, College Trustee
