KMCA Election procedures; sample ballot

To KMCA Members:

As previously announced, the Election Meeting will be held Wednesday, September 6, at 7:30 PM at Congregation Young Israel Shomrai Emunah, 1132 Arcola Avenue. Each Household is entitled to only one ballot, no matter how many members reside in the Household.

Candidates nominated so far are:

For President — Alan Felsen and Ira Ungar

For Director (two to be elected) — Peter Lublin

Additional nominations may be made from the floor at the meeting.  A candidate must be nominated by two members in good standing.  The nominee must be a member in good standing and must indicate a willingness to serve in the office.

Only members in good standing may vote or speak at the meeting.  Dues may be paid at the meeting.

The election will be only part of the business of the meeting.  The President will have appointed Tellers for the election.  When the order of the meeting does reach the election, the President will yield the Chair to Art Boyars, Vice-Chair of the Nominating Committee.  (Committee Chairman Stuart Rosenthal has an overriding need and will not be able to attend the meeting.)

In accordance with KMCA practice, the election will be conducted with a single ballot for all offices. Nominations will be taken from the floor for President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Director (two Directors may be elected).

After nominations close, members will have the opportunity to speak in favor of nominees for contested offices, in the order above for nominations. These remarks shall be limited in time: candidates themselves for President, five minutes each; candidates themselves for other offices, three minutes each; other members in support of a candidate, two minutes each.

(Note that Roberts Rules of Order prohibit motions to make a balloted election unanimous.  Therefore, even uncontested offices are included on the ballot.  However, there is no need to allow remarks in favor of unopposed candidates.)

After the remarks the Tellers will collect the ballots and retire to count them. When the Tellers have completed counting, they will report the results to the Chair of the meeting.

While ballots are being counted, other business may be conducted so long as the Tellers are not deprived of an opportunity to vote.

A sample ballot is attached.

Reminder-tick tubes event Tuesday and Thursday night. Free for those who cannot afford it7

Reminder: the KMCA is making Tick Tubes 8 pm on Tuesday August 29th and 8 pm, August 31st at Young Israel Shomrai Emunah (1132 Arcola, at the entrance of the Kemp Mill Shopping Center). You only need to attend one session.

Tick tubes are the most effective when used in the early and late summer over a 1-acre area, so bring your neighbors.

The cost is $10 at the door but will be free for those who cannot afford it. You will leave with 24 tick tubes and instructions on how to make more yourself. 24 tubes treat 1/2 acre until the next mouse nesting season in the early summer.

Come to also learn what you can do to make your property less attractive to mice, deer and ticks and hear an update on how Montgomery Parks and the KMCA are addressing the deer overpopulation.

Bring all those toilet paper rolls you’ve been saving!

Tick Tubes

KMCA is in the early stages of planning a Make Your Own Tick Tube Session for members. Tick tubes are the most effective way to reduce the number of ticks on your property making it safer for outdoor activity. Ticks can transit Lyme disease. Tick tubes are cotton balls soaked in Permethrin stuffed inside a toilet paper roll. Mice take the soft cotton balls back to their nests while the Permethrin kills the ticks but does not harm the mice. Buying pre-made tick tubes costs $80 but the KMCA is buying the materials and offering this event (led by an instructor) at a subsidized rate ($20 or less…TBD). You will leave with 24 tick tubes and instructions on how to make more yourself.

Start saving your toilet paper and paper towel rolls to help bring down the cost of the event.
