Recommendations were solicited over the CALL listserv and during the announcements portion of the September business meeting and then discussed among the committee members during virtual meetings. As was the case with last year’s election, the committee was behind the schedule set forth in the CALL Elections Checklist with our call for nominees, but in the end the committee was able to set up and complete the election in a timely manner.

through Friday, March 14th. Of the 266 members eligible to vote, 144 members elected the following candidates:
Julie Pabarja,Vice-President/President Elect
Stephanie Crawford, Treasurer
Robert Martin, Director
Deborah Ginsberg, Valerie Kropf, and Jesse Bowman were wonderful candidates and were exceptionally gracious when informed of the results! Thank you so much to all of you for agreeing to run for a CALL office. I hope to see your names of the ballot again very soon!
I would also like to thank the Nominations and Elections Committee – Denise Glynn, Ramsey Donnell, Joan Ogden, Kathellen Bruner, Lenore Glanz, Lyonette Louis-Jacques, and Susan Retzer.
A very special thank you to Joan Ogden – she is a wealth of information and frankly the knowledge keeper of all things related to the CALL election. We would not have had such a successful election without her wonderful expertise.
This year we had a 54.1% voting rate.
In years past the rates have been:
54.7% in 2012/2013
45.4% in 2011/2012
46.5% in 2010/2011
51.9% in 2009/2010
47.8% in 2008/2009
Hopefully next year we can have an unprecedented turn-out to choose our new Board members from a wonderful slate of dedicated CALL members!
