LEC Officer Election Information



Below are the Election Procedures we will be following at the Fall Conclave for Wulapeju Lodge. These procedures are spelled out in our Lodge Officers Manual. Anyone wishing to hold a Lodge Office must follow the procedures listed below to be placed on the Lodge Officer Ballot. Nominations will not be taken from the floor. The letter of intent to run should state the position or positions the Arrowman wishes to run for. You will not be able to run for a position that the letter of intent did not state. For example if you wish to run for Vice-Chief of Activities and are not elected to that position you cannot then run for Vice-Chief of Administration, if only the Vice-Chief of Activities position was stated in the letter of intent.  Since the Lodge Chief will be on summer camp staff it would be best to send the nomination letters to the Lodge Advisor at to ensure a timely review. These letters must be received by July 13, 2016 to be considered. Below are the positions and a description of the position.
