By LACA Election Committee - May 2021
Each year, LACA holds a general election and elects one half of its Officers and Regional Directors to a 2-year term. Last year, LACA held a very successful election electronically and we will be doing the same this year. Voting will be open from 15 June through 24 July, with results announced at the 31 July Annual Meeting.
The positions that will be on this year’s general election ballot will be: President, Treasurer, Regional Director for members residing in Spotsylvania County’s Partlow voting precinct, and Regional Director for members residing in Spotsylvania County’s Belmont voting precinct.
Normally, this year we would also be electing a Regional Director for LACA’s “private side” members; however, and due to a vacancy, a special election was held earlier this year and “private side” members elected Colleen Delawder to be their Regional Director.
Also, LACA has a vacancy in the Assistant Treasurer position so in conjunction with this year’s general election, a special election will be held to fill this opening. The position has one year remaining on its current term. Next year, the Assistant Treasurer position will be on the general election ballot for its full 2-year term.
LACA is actively seeking members to run for each elected position. In order to run for one of the two Regional Director positions, the candidate must own property in the region she is running. Currently, there are no candidates running for the Partlow Regional Director or Assistant Treasurer positions.
Every member will be eligible to vote for the President, Treasurer, and Assistant Treasurer positions but only those members who own property in the Partlow or Belmont precincts will be eligible to vote for their respective Regional Director.
It’s never too early to be thinking about volunteering to be on LACA’s board. Next year, LACA will be holding elections for Vice President; Secretary; Assistant Treasurer; Regional Director for members residing in Spotsylvania County’s Brokenburg voting precinct; Regional Director for members residing in Louisa County’s Mineral and Louisa voting precincts; and Regional Director for members residing on the “public side” of Louisa County’s Bumpass, Elk Creek and Fredricks Hall voting precincts.
