America-Nepal Society (ANS) Election – Nominations for 2017-2019 Term
The Current America Nepal Society (ANS) Executive Committee will soon be completing its term in the office. Hence, we need to nominate a new executive team to run ANS for the years 2017 – 2019. In this context, the current ANS executive board has formed a Five-Member Election Committee, under the leadership of Dr. Thakur Pudasaini, former president of ANS, to complete this mission. This committee will conduct the election for new ANS executives in a free, fair, and transparent manner, as authorized by the Article VII, 1, 2, & 3 of current ANS Bylaws and as decided by the current America Nepal Society Executive Committee (2014 – 2016). All ANS members with current memberships as of Nomination File Date, shall be eligible to be a candidate for any position of the Executive Committee, including the position of president. As per article VII (1) applicant should include a letter expressing his/her intention to serve and perform assigned duties if elected. The Nomination Form below should also be completed.
Qualification of candidates:
All ANS members with current memberships as of September 24, 2017, shall be eligible to be a candidate for any position of the Executive Committee, including the position of president.
However, the candidate should have a residency within the DC Metropolitan area.
Also, potential candidates are preferred (but not necessary) to be proposed by another ANS member to the committee, with a third ANS member supporting the proposed candidate.
The eligibility of each candidate will be examined against the membership roster prepared and updated by the executive board of the America Nepal Society.
Applicants filing for the position of the President are required to pay a NON-REFUNDABLE fee of $250.00.
