a. Discuss issues with this election and the election results.

Jeff lamented that the election procedure for the 2011-2012 Staff Council officers did not progress as smoothly as past elections. The main reason was that the majority of the 2010-2011 officers were up for re-election. Since the bylaws state “the Staff Council members who intend to run for re-election will not be allowed to serve on the nomination and election sub-committee,” there was a lack of leadership in the appointment of members to serve on the nomination and election sub-committee. Pierrette Maillet was asked by Jeff to chair the sub-committee. It was agreed upon by all present that she performed the duties excellently given the time constraints.
