After a busy third season we now enter our fourth round of elections for 107ist board members. The 107ist can only continue to work towards fulfilling its mission to support soccer in and around Portland, Oregon, from the grassroots to the highest professional level with volunteers to guide it and put in hours of work.
We have three board positions open this time and are now accepting candidate applications for them. Members selected this election will serve three-year terms from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016 (unless the Mayans were right). Lauren Prince has moved out of the country and will not be running again so there is an open seat that will be filled by a new board member. There other two seats up for election that are currently held by Sherrilynn “Sheba” Rawson and Jeremy Wright.
In order to offer the most complete insight into the candidates and their ideas a candidate forum will be held December 9, 2012 at the Bagdad Theater from 1:00-3:00. The forum will be moderated with questions to be submitted from the membership. Candidates should make this a priority to attend as this is a valuable place to express your vision of 107ist and where you would like it to go. The candidate forum will be recorded and offered online for our membership unable to attend, but attendance by our membership is strongly encouraged. The Bagdad will be staffed for both food and beverages. There will be a film shown afterwards to all who would like to stay and watch.
