This is the candidate nomination thread for the election to the position of CSA Chief of the Army.

The ACWGC Cabinet Election Committee is prepared to begin receiving nominations for the election of the CSA Chief of the Army position on September 26, 2018 through October 2, 2018, and candidates will be required to meet the criteria as defined by the ACWGC rules.

Regarding the duties of the Chief of the Army position:
3.3.2.2 Chiefs of the Armies (CoA’s). The CoA’s handle all military tasks for their respective military groups, participate and vote in Cabinet decisions, and perform other duties as assigned by the Club President. Each CoA shall have veto power over all Cabinet decisions. The veto may be overridden by a unanimous vote of the remaining Cabinet members.

Regarding the terms of the Chief of the Army position:
3.3.3. Terms of Office. Each Cabinet member will serve a term of two (2) years. Any Cabinet member may succeed himself in his elected office once, for total of four years. After the second term, the member must wait for one election period to run again for the same seat.

Regarding the timeframe of the nomination period:
3.3.4.1.5 Dates for nominations and voting are to be set by the Election Committee and published in the Mason-Dixon Tavern, with notice also in the Smoking Room. A maximum of one week should be allowed for nominations, two weeks for campaigning, and one additional week for voting.

Regarding the eligibility of the Chief of the Army candidates:
3.3.4.2 Eligibility

3.3.4.2.1 Candidates for Cabinet Secretary or Club President must hold the rank of Colonel or above. To be eligible for a CoA position, a member must hold the rank of Lieutenant General or above in their respective Army.

3.3.4.2.2 Candidates must be nominated by two other members before being placed on the ballot. Other than the President, nominating officers must be from the same military group as the candidate being nominated.

3.3.4.2.3 Nominations are to be submitted to the entire Cabinet. Nominations must include a statement that the member nominated agrees to serve, if elected. Verification of nominations will be by using the email address the nominator uses to submit the nomination. The email address that the nominator uses must be the email address of record in the Department of Records. The Election Committee will attempt to contact, via email, any nominator whose email address is different than the Department of Records in order for that member to have to opportunity to correct the address held in the Department of Records. Any addresses not corrected by the end of the nomination period will not be valid and that nomination will be disregarded.

In summary:
1) Candidates must hold the rank of Lieutenant General or above.
2) Candidates must be nominated by two other members before being placed on the ballot. Nominating officers must be from the same military group as the candidate being nominated.
3) Nominations must be submitted to the entire Election Committee, email addresses provided below.
4) Nominations must include a statement that the nominated officer agrees to serve if elected.
5) If nominating, the officer should use the email address of record contained in the Department of Records. The election committee will work to verify the identity of the nominating officer before the end of the nominating period; however the nomination will be disqualified if this is not possible before the end of the nominating period.


It is requested that commands inform their members at every level in order to ensure the best possible participation.

The Election Committee consists of: General Derald Riggs, General David Danner and Brig. Gen. Christian Hecht.
General Derald Riggs derald.riggs@gmail.com
General David Danner dvdanner@verizon.net
Brig. Gen. Christian Hecht BigDuke66@gmx.de

In case of more than one candidate the next thread will handle the Campaigning Period with all details needed for all candidates to do their campaigning.
In case there is only one candidate the next thread will announce the result of the election.

Again, please stick to the procedure that was posted.
1st - Get a statement from Scott that he wants to run at all.
2nd - Get a fellow CSA member to supports your nomination.
3rd - Send Scott's statement, your nomination and the statement your nomination being supported by a fellow CSA member to the complete committee.
Only then the nomination can be accepted.


It's the least to ask Scott if he wants to run as, he does it already for 4 years and so it can't be taken for granted that he wants to continue.
