Board Member Elections

Hacksburg will be having elections on May 26th to replace Ben Weinstein-Raun on the Board of Directors.

Ben is graduating from Virginia Tech this semester, and will be leaving Blacksburg for a job in San Francisco. We on the board wish him all the best in his future endeavours. With Ben’s departure, Hacksburg will dip below its required 3 people on the Board of Directors; as such, we must have an election to replace him. The election will be on Tuesday, May 26th at 8 PM at the space. Nominations for the position will begin at midnight tomorrow and close at 7:59 PM on May 26th.

Nominations may be made by emailing Andrew Mike (andrew at hacksburg dot org). You may nominate yourself, if you wish. Nominees to the Board must meet the following requirements:

  • They must be full members of Hacksburg in good standing (or be prepared to acheive full membership).
  • They must positively confirm that they want to be a nominee (no drafting people!).

In contrast to Board positions in most businesses, the Board of Directors of Hacksburg takes a significantly more hands-on approach to Hacksburg’s operations. We on the board put in an average of 5-10 hours per week on Hacksburg-related business. This includes posts to Hacksburg’s social media outlets, maintenance of Hacksburg’s online presence, discussion and planning of events, helping out at events, and fulfilling various administrative tasks. It’s a demanding job, but a rewarding one as well. We hope you’ll join us.
