MOTION III: Moved by C. Bauer (VI), and seconded by D. Holland (EVP) to accept the Nominating Committee Report. Nominees on the ballot will be as follows: District I – Andy Argenio, incumbent; District V – Tony Stillman, incumbent; District IX – Mark T. Smith, incumbent; President – Rich Hanson, Dave Mathewson, and Bill Oberdieck.
MOTION passed unanimously

BREAK >>>>>>>>>>

SPECIAL NOTICE: Again incumbent DVPs are running unopposed. That, gentlemen, is one good reason that you are not taken very seriously by the AMA EC. No one will even be nominated for opposing the incumbent. If 3 or less are nominated, the Nom. Comm. HAS to place you on the ballot. It doesn't cost you anything other than sending in a resume and a campaign statement.
With all the stuff that is complained about here, this is hard to decipher. HC.
