TRU President and Vice President – Accepting Nominations

The TRU Board is now accepting nominations for individuals interested in running for President or Vice President. Individuals may nominate themselves by submitting a rugby resume as well as a personal statement (maximum one page) explaining why they wish to run for either position. Individuals may also nominate others, the Board will contact these individuals to determine if they accept the nomination and acquire the requested documents.

Please send nominations to the TRU Admin, admin@texasrugbyunion.com; Note that the nomination window closes August 11, 2017.

Nominations will be posted on the TRU website no later than August 18, 2017 for all members to review.  

Forum @ AGM

The TRU Summer AGM will devote a period of time for each candidate to address the TRU Membership in attendance; TRU Members, Club Representatives and Board Members will be allowed and encouraged to ask the candidates questions and the candidates are obligated to give a short, but explanative response. This portion will be moderated by current TRU Board members to ensure order and effective use of time.

Voting

Electronic voting for TRU President will open immediately upon adjournment of the TRU Summer AGM and will remain open for five (5) days. Upon the close of voting, the TRU Board will certify the election and announce the winner (provided there is not a tie and run-off needed) on Friday following the TRU Summer AGM.

Electronic voting for Vice President will open two (2) weeks from the close of the Presidential election and will remain open for five (5) days. Nominees not selected as President will have an automatic nomination for Vice President; however, nominees must formally accept the Vice President nomination.

Please contact the current TRU President or any of divisional representatives if you have questions or concerns about this process.
