On behalf of the Ad Hoc Committee on Elections, thank you for participating in the UCLA Latino Alumni Association (ULAA) 2018 election of Executive Officers and Standing Committee Chairs.
As a volunteer-driven organization, ULAA depends upon your participation and leadership to keep our legacy vibrant. We hope that your vote is just one of many ways that you will engage with ULAA in the coming year.
Members are participating in this election through one of several portals - the ULAA website, the ULAA Facebook page and through emails like this from the UCLA Alumni Association. Candidate statements are available online at the ULAA website. You may click here CANDIDATE BIOS & STATEMENTS to connect to the bios and candidate statements. We strongly encourage you to review the candidate bios and statements. You are not required to vote for all positions to have your ballot counted.
To better understand participation in the election process, please read through the following paragraph.
Article III of the ULAA bylaws describe being a member and the various categories of membership. In Article III, Section 3.1 A it defines membership as being “… open to all graduates who have received a UCLA degree, friends of UCLA and current UCLA students.” The bylaws further refine membership in Section 3.2 A which reads: “Voting membership - All alumni and graduates who have received a UCLA degree shall become a voting member in good standing upon the payment of dues. Voting members shall have the rights and privileges afforded to them by these bylaws, including the right to vote and hold office.” Since dues are not being collected, the requirement for casting a valid ballot is being an “alumni and graduates who have received a UCLA degree.” Only those who qualify as voting members may cast a ballot. Voting members may only cast one ballot and you must complete all of the demographic information on the last page of the ballot form to have your ballot verified and counted.
Balloting closes at midnight on Monday, July 30. We expect to have results posted by Wednesday, August 7. Please consult with the ULAA website (link) for election results.
If you encounter problems with the ULAA website or the Facebook page, please contact Richard Salazar at firstname.lastname@example.org, If you encounter problems with the ballot please email email@example.com with ULAA 2018 Election in the subject line.
Thank you again for your participation.
