Announcing the Candidates for the 2019 EAA Elections

As is customary for this time of the year, the Engineers & Architects Association is conducting its annual elections to fill seats in the Board of Governors and Unit Councils that are vacant or soon to be vacated. With the petition for candidacy window long since closed, the EAA Election Committee recently convened a special session to review and approve qualifying applications from participating members. 

Before we reveal this year’s selection of candidates, it should be noted that ballots for the 2019 EAA Elections will be mailed Friday, November 8th. This also marks the official start to 2019 EAA Elections voting period. Completed ballots must be received by the post office by no later than 8:00a November 22nd. Only voluntary dues paying members are eligible to vote. For more information regarding EAA Election rules, refer back to the original 2019 EAA Election Announcement

With that said, here are this year’s candidates running for office in the 2019 EAA Election:

A Message from EAA Election Committee Chairperson Robyn Myers

Please take a moment, when your ballot arrives, to fill it out and mail it back. The ballots MUST be in the American Arbitration Mailbox no later than 8:00 a.m of November 22nd. You may NOT deliver the ballot to the EAA Office. PLEASE remember to SIGN THE ENVELOPE in the signature block area. We need a SIGNATURE, as a return address label by itself will not count. YOU NEED TO SIGN the signature block in order for your vote to be counted.

The ballots will be mailed November 8th. If you do not receive your ballot within a week of that date, please contact the EAA office at 213.620.6920 to get a replacement mailed promptly to you. Should you vote, and then change your mind, you may request a replacement ballot. The envelopes are coded with your individual information and only the later ballot will be counted.

The Election Committee invites all members to observe the counting, which will take place on the morning of November 22nd at the EAA Offices. The ballots are to be picked up from the post office at 8 a.m. They are then sorted and verified before the actual counting begins, usually around 9:30 a.m., depending on how many ballots are received.

We urge you to exercise your right as dues paying members and VOTE. Fill out the ballot; SIGN the pre- paid envelope; and drop it in the mailbox.

Thank you.

Robyn Myers
Chairperson, EAA Election Committee
