Board of Directors
The 9 - 15 member Board of Directors that governs Norskedalen is elected by the members of the corporation at the Annual Meeting in January. Each Director is elected to a three year term and may be re-elected to serve a total of three consecutive terms (9 years).
The terms are staggered so that 5 Directors are up for election/re-election each year at the annual meeting of the members, held on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon in January. The Bylaws stipulate that one seat on the Board be reserved for a Director designated by the Gundersen family.
Nisse Note: The Board of Directers normally meets the 3rd Monday of the month at Norskedalen, beginning at 4pm.
Election of Board Members
2007 was the first year of direct election to the Board of Directors by Norskedalen members.
The election process begins with a nominating committee, appointed, per Norskedalen's bylaws, by the Board President. The nominating committee is usually appointed in September as the candidates (if there are open seats) need to be listed in the November Crossings.
Also per the bylaws of the organization, any member of Norskedalen can become a candidate for the Board of Directors by submitting their name along with the signatures of five members in good standing at least 90 days prior to the succeeding Annual Meeting of the members, or by nomination and second at the annual meeting. The official ballot approved by the Board shall offer at least one candidate for each open position and a similar number of write-in spaces. Individual members in the Friends of Norskedalen have one vote. Family, Trailblazer, Pathfinders, Pioneer and Life members may complete two ballots.
To Vote: Members in the Friends of Norskedalen may vote by dropping off or sending a paper ballot to Norskedalen at PO Box 235, Coon Valley, WI 54623, or by faxing 608-452-3157. Members may also vote by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org listing the names of the candidates they wish to vote for (up to 4 names). Voting takes place anytime prior to the Annual Meeting or at the meeting in person.
