Elections 2018

GSMOL Elections are Coming!

The GSMOL Board of Directors positions up for election in 2018 are: President; Vice Presidents for Zones A-1, B-1, and D; Vice President at Large; and Vice President for Resident-Owned Communities. Candidates elected to these positions will serve a 4-year term, 2018-2022.

For the first time in recent memory, instead of delegates to the convention electing the above Board members, each membership will be allowed a vote, and it will all be done by mail.

Your ballot will be in The Californian. This will be the Oct/Nov/Dec issue arriving in January.

The deadline to return your ballot to the address indicated on the ballot is MARCH 16, 2018

Duties of Officers (from GSMOL State Bylaws)

Bylaws Changes

Any GSMOL member in good standing can propose a change to the State Bylaws. Proposals needed to be sent to Ray Downing, Chair of the Bylaws Committee, by October 5, 2017. The Bylaws Committee reviewed the proposals and gave a written report to the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors voted on whether to recommend or not recommend each proposal to the members. The Corporate Counsel then prepared a report to be published to the members. This report will be in the Election Issue of The Californian, coming out in January 2018.
