January 2009 Humanity+ (WTA) Board Elections


Humanity+ (WTA) Board members set policy goals and oversee their implementation, contributing with their experience and expertise to the WTA's work. We've got a very full agenda for the coming year, setting up our new website, revising the Transhumanist Declaration, fundraising, building our network of chapters and student groups, and publishing our new H+ magazine.

Please think about contributing your talents and energy for our projects. Five Humanity+ (WTA) Board members' terms expire in January and two others are leaving the Board to pursue exciting new projects. Running for a board post, as well as voting in the election, is open to all dues-paid ("supporting" or "sustaining") members of the association.

All voting members in good standing as of Saturday January 10th, 2009 are eligible to run in and vote in the Board election. Board members must be and remain voting members in good standing in order to run and serve.

The Board meets and votes virtually, so no travel is required, although Internet access is essential.

The term of service is two years, Jan 20, 2009 - Jan 20, 2011, for the five open positions, which will be filled by the five candidates with the most votes. The two candidates with the next most votes will fill the two one year replacement positions (Jan 20, 2009 - Jan 20, 2010).

The period for self-nominations closes Saturday January 10th, 2009 at noon GST.

Candidate statements will be posted on January 11th, 2009.

Voting will be conducted Monday January 12th to Thursday January 15th, 2009.

Please send your candidate statements to H+ (WTA) Secretary J. Hughes at [[email protected]].
