About the 2019 BTU Elections

On January 4, 2018, the call for the Nominations for the 2019 BTU Internal Elections was mailed to the home addresses of all members who are eligible to vote (dues paying members in good standing as of Dec 7, 2018.)

Fifty-nine members answered the call! All but 7 qualified for office by securing the necessary ten signatures from members in good standing.

A forum for members was held to view the Executive Officer candidates speeches which were videoed and to ask questions. The opportunity to video a speech at BTU was offered to Executive Board candidates and all candidates had the opportunity to submit a candidate statement.

Who is Running?
At the left are links to candidate videos and statements for the candidates who will be on the ballot for Executive Officer positions and Executive Board positions. Below those are links to offices where candidates were unopposed and therefore elected by acclamation.
