Meet You Candidates
Meet Your Candidates for Three Vacancies on the Board of Directors to be filled by an election on June 1, 2015!
An election for 3 SLSA Director Positions will be held on June 1st, using a voting machine on Solace Dreams just outside the SLSA Clubhouse.
If you are an eligible voter (i.e., you have competed in one of the last 6 events or volunteered in one of the last 3 events or are a hall of fame inductee), you will receive a notice when voting is open.
We sincerely wish to thank each of the following candidates, who graciously and selflessly have chosen to stand for election on June 1st. We thank these candidates for their community spirit and willingness to serve. They all deserve our appreciation. Each of the following statements was prepared by the respective candidates.
Again, to every sitting board member, and upon publication, to every member of the slsa, here is my note and offer to sit on the board. In this regard, I am willing and, if so chosen, committed to sit on the board for the next six months.
As I said before, I am affiliated with and a captain on the Montego Surf Team. In complete disclosure, I admit that I love every member of our team. However that will not come into play in my work on the board.
And nothing new, again, I do not have any plans for any major changes or improvements. Rather I see a need for some stability. I have served on the board before and have participated in events both as a surfer, marshal, judge, event coordinator, and even once as security, giggle, can you imagine me as security, although I do have a riding crop,come to think of it, hhmmmmm, wondering what the means…
In any event, I believe in commitment and hard work, when it is needed. I am a dedicated believer in our first amendment here in the United States and the ability of one to say what is on their mind and the ability of every individual to express their own person as they may choose. At the same time I understand the need for a structure to keep it all in order, but also one that incorporates each person..
I know that this is a repetition of my prior offer, but again nothing much has changed and once again, I am here to help and offer my assistance, and as the song goes, “Can I go honey, can I go now, take his shift at the mine…” Cumberland Blues, Garcia, Hunter, Lesh, Workingmen’s Dead, studio version, recorded 2/70, released 6/70. Take care. Robbin Ember.
Dear Directors and Fellow SLSA members,
My name is Cierra Theriac and would like to be considered for a 6-month seat on the SLSA Board of Directors that has become open.
I am a founding SLSA Director and have served again on the Board since then. I wish to give back to the organization and community that has provided me with so much. Being a director is the ultimate way that I can volunteer my time and effort to help the SLSA continue to be a successful organization and hold our beloved competitions.
Our original founding vision was to create an organization to run successful surfing competition and create a community we could all be a part of. I believe the SLSA has achieved this and has continued to grow and improve from the original set up.
I have been held all positions in a competition, from Event Coordinator, to Marshal and Judge, and most importantly, a surfer.
Currently, I am co-owner of Bluff Cove surf sim, wave rider designs, and the blog Surfside (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I am available to serve an entire 6-month term.
Thank you for your consideration, Cie
