2019 USA Rugby Congress Club Representative – Accepting Nominations

Dave Yeoman’s two year term as a Congress Club Representative for the TRU will end at the end of this CIPP cycle (Aug 31). USA Rugby is hosting a Summer AGM and we’d like to have our new representative seated so they can attend this event. We’d like to thank Dave for his continued time and support as a Congress Club Representative to USA Rugby on behalf of the TRU.

The TRU Board is now accepting nominations for individuals interested in the seat. The responsibilities and duties of the Club Congress Representatives was previously posted and can be found here. Note that the newly elected member would be heavily encouraged to attend the USA Rugby Summer AGM in Denver, CO on July 26-28 (TRU covers flight and hotel cost).

Individuals may nominate themselves by submitting a rugby resume as well as a personal statement (maximum one page) explaining why they wish to hold one of the seats. Individuals may also nominate others, the TRU Administrator 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 June 25, 2019.

Nominations will be posted on the TRU website no later than June 26 for all members to review.

Each TRU Senior Club President in good standing will vote for their top two candidates via a form on the TRU website. The candidate with the most votes will fill the seat. 

The Election results will be announced on the TRU website no later than July 5. The votes will be verified by Kirk Tate and Wendy Young.

Voting

Electronic voting for these positions will open immediately after the nominations are posted on the website 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) by July 2.

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