Organization for Transformative Works Elections News: Cast Your Vote!

The Elections Committee would like to thank all of our candidates for their hard work in this year’s election. With that, we are pleased to present the results of the 2021 Election.

The following candidates (in alphabetical order) have been officially elected to the Board of Directors:

E. Anna Szegedi
Kari Dayton

Additionally, the Board of Directors is sorry to announce that director Kati Eggert, who was elected last year, is stepping down from her position on the Board for personal reasons, effective immediately. We are grateful for Kati’s service and thank her for her work and dedication.

To fill the vacant seat, the Board is appointing the candidate who placed third in this election, Antonius Melisse, to join the Board of Directors and serve the remainder of Kati’s term (two years) starting on October 1. This will guarantee that we continue to have a full Board until the next election.

The new members of the Board will formally begin their term overlap on October 1. We wish them well with their terms.

With that, the election season comes to a close. Thank you to everyone who got involved by spreading the word, asking the candidates questions, and, of course, voting! We look forward to seeing all of you again next year.
