RMOUG – Call for Nominations to the Board of Directors 2012-2013
The Rocky Mountain Oracle Users Group continues to be the leading locally organized user group in the country. The success of RMOUG can be attributed to its members, the volunteers who support the activities of the users group, and the Board of Directors who provides direction for the users group.
The RMOUG bylaws require the regular election of the Board of Directors.
These bylaws (available online at http://www.rmoug.org/about/bylaws/) outline the makeup and duties of the Board of Directors:
- The range of the number of the Directors shall be an odd number between five and fifteen.
- The management, control, and government of the Corporation (RMOUG) shall be vested in the Board of Directors.
- The Board of Directors shall preserve, protect, and promote the interests of the Corporation and will be responsible for formulating the general policy of the Corporation in accordance with the expressions of the members.
Note: current general policies for the users group can be found online at http://www.rmoug.org/about/policies/
