2022 SHARE Election Information

The information below is provided to introduce you to the candidates who will be standing for election to the Board of Directors.

Additionally, the SHARE Board of Directors has proposed an amendment to the SHARE Bylaws that you will be asked to approve. Please review the details of the proposed changes here.

Here are the significant changes in the proposed Bylaws amendment:

  1. A Member of SHARE may be an individual as well as an Establishment.
  2. Continued qualification for membership will require satisfying the current criteria for membership (or affiliation). Under current Bylaws it is also valid to continue to satisfy the criteria under which the Member or Affiliate last qualified. This change would allow the SHARE Board to make future adjustments to membership criteria.
  3. Bylaws articles 5.12 and 6.10 are obsolete and are removed. These two provisions were needed for the initial transition from SHARE Inc to SHARE Association.

Please review this material carefully as you prepare to cast a vote on behalf of your installation. In the event that your Installation Representative will not be available, please appoint an alternate from your installation to cast your vote. Voting will take place electronically in accordance with SHARE Bylaws 7.11.

Electronic Voting Information

Electronic voting will open at 8:00 AM ET on Saturday, August 20th, 2022, and will remain open until 4:00 PM ET on Wednesday, August 24th, 2022.

Electronic voting instructions and credentials will be emailed to the Installation Representative. If you have not received these by August 13th, 2022, please inquire at sharehq@share.org.

Pursuant to SHARE Bylaws 7.3 “Nomination by Petition”, the deadline for submission to the Secretary of nominating petitions and assurances is hereby announced at 6:00 PM CT on Tuesday August 2nd, 2022.

Letter from the Nominating Committee Chairman To the SHARE Membership

I am pleased to announce the candidates for the SHARE election to be held during our Anniversary Meeting. The election will be held electronically and during SHARE Columbus this August.

In accepting these nominations, the listed individuals and their employers are making a significant commitment of personal and organizational time and resources over and above that made by the typical SHARE participant. SHARE extends its thanks and gratitude to these candidates and to their sponsoring organizations.

Four Officers and two Director-At-Large positions are to be filled by election this year. These are the positions we are required, by Article 7 of the SHARE Association Bylaws, to nominate a slate of candidates. The Nominating Committee has selected the candidates listed below.

The Nominating Committee has determined that each candidate is qualified and each has submitted the appropriate assurance of willingness to serve that is required by Section 7.4 of the Bylaws. Please join me in thanking them and their employers for their dedication and commitment to SHARE.

I want to thank the 2021-22 Nominating Committee – Carla Flores, Holden O’Neal, James Lund and Jeanne Glass for their hard work and commitment to SHARE and the Nominating Committee process.
