TDU International Steering Committee 2020 Election Process

Due to the special circumstances of the pandemic, and our inability to hold our Convention in person, the following procedures were adopted by the current ISC for the election this year, and only for this year. 

  1. Any member of TDU can nominate a member of TDU as a candidate for the ISC. Self-nominations shall be permitted this year.

  2. Nominations must be received by the TDU Staff by October 20. Nominations can be by electronic means, mail, fax, or other means. The nominated candidate (unless self-nominated) will be contacted to see if they accept the nomination. 

  3. The staff shall verify current TDU membership and produce a list of nominated candidates. 

  4. Each nominated candidate may submit a short campaign statement (50 words max) and a picture. The staff shall then assemble an ISC candidate report with each candidate, bio and pic. The order shall be by lot. The staff shall offer to help with a picture and/or help edit a short statement, if the candidate desires. 

  5. TDU members who register for the TDU Convention shall be eligible to vote. Eligible voters shall receive the ISC candidate report no later than November 1.

  6. The vote shall be online, by secret ballot, on November 8.

  7. Following the election, the ISC members elected shall meet to select the officers on the committee for the coming year (co-chairs, organizer, and trustees). 

  8. These procedures are for this year only; we shall return to our normal procedure next year.
