Dear Dan Member, I hope this letter finds you in good health and spirits.
As the secretary of the Board of Directors, the Federation’s By–laws charge me with overseeing distribution of and tallying responses for all Board Director nominations and election votes.
This process is outlined in and conducted under the authority of the United States Soo Bahk Do Moo Duk Kwan Federation, Inc.’s Charter and By-laws.
In each region where Board Director terms are expiring, nomination forms were mailed to all Dan members eligible to vote and who had current membership.
The top two nominees from each region are listed below and each has accepted their nomination and agreed to run in this election.
Board Directors elected in 2020 will serve your region for a term of three years from 01/01/2021 to 12/31/2023.
Region 2: Tony Le, Kyo Sa John Kim, Sa Bom
Region 3: Cheyenne Smith, Master Martina Wilson, Kyo Sa
Region 6: Dwayne Townsend, Sa Bom James Willers, Sa Bom
Region 9: Board Chair To Appoint
Region 10: Charles Holland, Sa Bom None
As a Federation Dan member of voting age you have the right to vote for your regional representative for the Board of Directors.
All active Dan members over the age of 18 are eligible to vote.
All voting members over the age of 18 are eligible to serve as a Board Director.
Due to covid circumstances, unreliable postal delivery timing, extended nomination runoffs and the short amount of time until current director terms expire, only electronic notification and voting are feasible to complete these elections in time.
Please vote online before the deadline.
Service on the Board of Directors is a serious responsibility and requires Board Directors to dedicate a substantial amount of time to conducting Federation business.
A brief outline of the duties and responsibilities of Board Directors is available at www.soobahkdo.com.
YOUR VOTE MUST BE SUMBITTED ONLINE BEFORE DECEMBER, 27 2020 MIDNIGHT.
Secretary, Board of Directors
