Electronic Voting Notice


news

Dear Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma Voting Members,
 
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent mandates from federal, state and local government officials restricting gatherings, the Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma’s Board of Directors has decided to hold elections normally conducted in person at the Annual Meeting via an electronic ballot.  Based on the advice received from legal counsel, the Board of Directors believes this measure is necessary to protect the members of our council.
 
In order to hold these elections in a legally compliant manner, we will require some cooperation from you.  You will receive a ballot via email on or about April 24th to vote on all elections.  The ballot will also request that you consent to hold an electronic vote to remain compliant with Oklahoma State Statues.  The quorum requirements in the Bylaws of Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma will remain in effect.
 
As required by our bylaws, attached is the slate of nominees for our Board of Directors, our Board Development Committee and our National Delegates and Alternates.  These are the nominees that will appear on the electronic ballot issued to the voting members.  We have also included for your review the legal recommendation provided by our counsel and the Resolution signed by our Board of Directors.
 
We are disappointed that we will not be able to gather in person to celebrate our Gold Award girls and our Adult Award recipients but we look forward to announcing a time later in the year when this can occur safely.
 
Remember, a Girl Scout is who you are not what you do!
