Pursuant to the MAPPS bylaws
and the prior notification to the members of the 2012 election process, I am pleased to provide the report of the MAPPS Nominations Committee. That committee, Jeff Lovin (Woolpert, Cincinnati, OH), Marvin Miller (AeroMetric, Inc., Maple Grove, MN), Mitchell Long (GRW, Inc., Lexington, KY), Richard Crouse (Richard Crouse & Associates, Inc., Frederick, MD), and George Southard (Trimble, Inc., Westminster, CO) has placed in nomination for positions on the MAPPS Board of Directors:
Jeff Lower* - Magnolia River, Inc. (Huntsville, AL)
Brian Raber* - Merrick & Company (Aurora, CO)
Paul Harwig# - Fugro Horizons, Inc. (Rapid City, SD)
Bob Hanson# - Michael Baker, Jr., Inc. (Harrisburg, PA)
(*Incumbent, #New Nominee)
The aforementioned names will be placed in nomination at the MAPPS Annual Business Meeting, Friday, July 13 at 10:15 AM MDT, during the summer conference at The Viceroy Resort & Hotel in Snowmass, Colorado.
As always, our process will enable independent nominations/candidacies from the floor, during the business meeting, should someone not recommended by the Nominations Committee wish to be considered by the full membership.
In order to make a nomination from the floor, I am requesting that any such floor nomination be filed with Ken Stiller
(HAS Images, Inc., Dayton, OH), Chairman of the Tellers Committee, no later than close of business July 3
-- ten days prior to the annual business meeting. The Tellers Committee will also include Jane Smith (Cardinal Systems, Flagger Beach, FL), Richard Breitlow (Agfa Corporation, Goose Greek, SC) and Mark Schubert (Aerial Surveys International, Inc., Watkins, CO).
This "filing" of a floor candidacy will enable the Tellers Committee and staff to prepare materials and procedures necessary to facilitate such a contested election. This in no way limits independent candidacies, it only requires prior notice so we have a fair, efficient and professional process.
Congratulations to those who have been nominated and my thanks for your dedication to our profession and association.
This notice is being sent to all individuals in all MAPPS member firms in good standing. If you are already registered to attend the Summer Conference, thank you. If you are not yet signed up to attend but wish to do so, please register
