Because PLD & URMD each will have two current Governors remaining on the Board for fiscal year 2021, PLD & URMD will be limited to 2 newly elected Governors. However, more than 2 candidates from these divisions can be included on the ballot if determined eligible by the Nominations and Elections Committee. For example, URMD may have 3 viable candidates for the election, and all three can be included on the ballot. However, only the top 2 in vote count would be eligible to be elected to the BOG, and the third place URMD candidate would be eliminated. SGD and UAMD are both eligible to have 3 newly elected Governors.
Initially, contact a UESI Board Member, Division Executive Committee Member, UESI Staff member or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org to express interest before filling out application.
