Attention Bolingbrook Mustang Youth Flag Football Members:
I am excited to be exercising the democratic process that makes for a highly diversified and energetic board of directors. According to our current (2009) bylaws:
Article 4- b:
The election for Board positions will be held during the first round of the playoffs and will be for specific positions. Election for the offices of President, Secretary, Head Referee, Business Director, Publicity Director, and Director of Operations and Scheduling, will be held in odd-numbered years. Elections for Vice-President, Treasurer, Equipment Manager, Player Representative, and Assistant Director of Referee, will held in even-numbered years.
A Nominating committee consisting of present Board Members, whose offices are not currently up for election, will accept nominations for the individual offices and coordinate the election process. The Committee will be responsible for preparing the ballots, issuing ballots to the voting membership, collecting and counting the completed ballots, and announcing the winners of each office.
For purposes of the election of Board Members, the voting membership shall consist of current Board Members, Assistants to the Board, registered coaches and officials, and the parents and/or legal guardians of registered players.
The following offices are up for election during this season’s playoffs:

All potential candidates for an upcoming election will need to submit a letter of intent or resume to the board no later than 1 week before the election. All letters of intent or resumes will be on display at the voting table on Election Day.
