The Association of Alumni Executive Committee will announce its nominated slate of candidates for officers and members of the Executive Committee by November 28, 2016. Petition candidates have until December 13, 2016, to submit a petition with 250 Dartmouth alumni signatures for inclusion on a ballot. The executive committee or any one percent of the voting members of the Association may file a proposed amendment to the Association of Alumni constitution. The deadline to submit signed petitions to place amendments to the association constitution on a ballot is November 14, 2016.
If the nominated Association of Alumni slate is uncontested, then they will assume office, without the need for an election, on the day of the annual meeting of the Association of Alumni, March 14, 2017. If the slate is contested and/or there are Association of Alumni constitution amendments to be voted on, then the annual election will be held from February 10 through March 9, 2017. The results of the election will be announced at the Association of Alumni annual meeting on March 14, 2017. Ballots in the election may be cast by mail or electronic transmission. Ballots will be sent electronically to each eligible voter, unless a voter has asked the secretary or the Office of Alumni Relations to send the voter a paper ballot by mail, in which case the secretary will send the voter a paper ballot by mail, and will send ballots electronically to all voters who do not request a paper ballot by mail.
