The New Electronic Voting; How It Works
SECTION 3:02 QUALIFICATION AND ELECTION
Only Active Members of the Red Knights International Motorcycle Club, who have previously served a Chapter or Association as President or Vice President or as a State or Provincial Representative for a minimum of one term, may serve on the International Executive Board. Incumbents must notify the Nominations Committee in writing of their intent to seek re-election no later than 180 (one hundred eighty) days prior to the Annual Business Meeting. Upon notification by an incumbent of their intention to seek re-election, prior to the 180 (one hundred eighty) day time frame, they will be placed on the Ballot. Incumbents that do not notify the Nominations Committee of their intention to seek re-election prior to the 180(one hundred eighty) day date will be required to follow the process of obtaining nomination and completing the required documentation as a non-Incumbent. Nominations for all positions on the International Executive Board must be received, in writing, by the Nomination Committee no later than 90 (ninety) days prior to the International Annual Corporation Meeting. To be placed on the ballot a qualified member must be nominated by the President or Vice President of two Chapters. Once elected to the International Executive Board, State or Provincial Representatives must within 60 (sixty) days, resign the State/Provincial Representative position they currently hold. A Member-at-Large may be nominated for any position on the International Executive Board having received a majority vote of the International Executive Board.
