RIPUL 2022 - Board Elections

People,

Hope everyone is enjoying the RIPUL offseason. We all know everyone would rather be playing though, of course.

We are going to have the first elections for the RIPUL Board this winter! Starting on December 1st, we will send out a form for nominees to fill out and express their interest in running. We will give folks 2 weeks to get those in. Anyone who has ever played in RIPUL is eligible to be a nominee. Once we have all the nominees in, we will send out a voting form for all RIPUL players (past and present) to vote on. We will be looking to elect one female-matching player and one male-matching player. Voting will be done over a week, and winners will be announced after that.

Currently there are 7 members on the Board. The two new members will bring it to 9. After this next year, initial board terms will be expiring, and there will be a mix of board positions that are elected while others are appointed. The term for each elected Board member is 2 years.

The Board is a recently created group, so the 'official' duties of it are still being solidified. The following are some of the duties that the Board will be responsible for:

  • Anything that may come up during the season (weather cancellations, COVID issues, etc)
  • Escalations from the Equity Committee
  • Draft prep / baggage requests
  • Coordination with other RIPUL committees (Equity, funD, etc)
  • Creating board structures and governance

We will send out the nominee form on December 1st. It will be a pretty short form, and will require a reference from another RIPUL vet, so just be sure to have someone in mind.

More details will be sent out with the form on December 1st, so be on the lookout for that! If anyone has any questions, please let us know. (https://ripul.org/contact.php)
