All voting members of Mikanakawa Lodge (current registered Scouts under 21 by September 6, 2014) are called to attend the election of Lodge Officers for 2015 at the Lodge Fellowship at Trevor Rees-Jones Scout Camp, September 5-7. The elections will take place on Saturday, September 6th. Voting members must be paid current on lodge dues (you can pay your dues there or before at $15) and, due to event policy, must also be registered for the Fall Fellowship. Circle Ten Council requires that all Scouts and Scouters on camp property for an event be registered for said event.
Candidates for any lodge office must interview with the Lodge Elections Committee before their election. The Lodge Elections Committee explains the duties of each office and will either approve or deny a candidate from running for an office.
On September 6th, the election will start with the Lodge Chief and end with the Vice-Chief of Communications and Technology. Candidates that run for an office and do not win may elect to drop down and run for another office. During the election, voting members will be separate from the members 21 and over. All candidates will speak and be allowed speakers during each office election. Voting is by stand up ballot.
The officers of Mikanakawa Lodge are the Lodge Chief, Vice-Chief of Camp Promotions, Vice-Chief of Service, Vice-Chief of Native American, Vice-Chief of Administration, Vice-Chief of Technology and Communications. All officers and committees have detailed jobs that need to be updated and maintained on a continuing basis. Therefore, only summary job descriptions are presented here.
The term of office is the calendar year January to December. Officers are elected at the Fellowship in the fall the year before their term begins.
