Please review the below nominees for the MD2 seat on the Red River Competitions Committee.
Quorum is 2/3 of eligible voters (4/7 clubs in this case). Candidate must receive more than 50% of the votes to be declared the winner. In case of a tie, the Competitions Chair will break the tie as specified in the Committee Terms of Reference.
Note that each club only gets one vote, and may only vote in the election for their highest division. As an example the Austin Blacks can only vote in Men’s D1, even though they have Men’s Division 2 and 3 sides.
- Fort Worth
- San Antonio
- West Houston
**As we are in a new registration cycle, clubs will need to be registered with USA Rugby to be considered eligible to vote.
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 Collection & Confirmation:
Wendy Young, TRU admin will send out a digital ballot after the TRU AGM to the current Divisional Club Presidents listed on the TRU Contacts page (updated annually). David Dodge, Competitions Chair, will assist and confirm the votes. If you don’t receive the digital ballot or have additional questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
