2011 Leadership Election Closes Aug. 30
Voting continues to be very close in the 2011 PRSA Houston leadership election. The votes outstanding could move any candidate into the finalist spots. The electonic voting system will close Monday, August 30, 2010.
While you may have voted, please encourage other members to get their votes in by the end of the day Monday. Winners will be announced at the Sept. 1 luncheon and Annual Meeting.
You should have received your ballot on Aug. 12 from Katrina Kokoska. If you did not receive it, contact Paula Ruth, APR. Only one vote per member will be permitted. Once a ballot ID has been used, it may not be used again.
Before casting your ballot, take time to look at the candidate biographies, reflect on what you would like from the Houston Chapter and identify those people you think can lead it best over the next three years.
Voters must select four directors and one delegate.
There are nine members running for election to one of four open three-year Board of Director terms beginning in January 2010.

The Board thanks the Nominating Committee, under the direction of Terri Larson, for producing an excellent slate of candidates. Each candidate’s enthusiasm is appreciated.
Under PRSA Houston's bylaws, at least 25% of a chapter’s membership must participate in the election process for the election to be valid.
The election candidates are being considered for positions that will determine the direction of PRSA Houston for a three-year period. In choosing a candidate, remember that a good Board requires a diverse mixture of people who work hard as well as those who will bring prestige, connections or financial support to PRSA Houston.
All Board candidates are members in good standing with PRSA Houston. Assembly candidates are accredited or are serving as a current chapter officer.
About one-third of the Board positions change each year. In the case of the Assembly Delegates, these are the members who represent us at the General Assembly of PRSA which is held just prior to the International Conference.
