Venturing Officers Association Elections Planned

The Venturing Officers Association was created late last year with a temporary set of officers. In order to formally establish a slate of officers that will go on to serve a one-year term, the Patriots’ Path Council VOA will hold elections on May 10, 2022, at 7:30 p.m. at the PPC Service Center in Cedar Knolls.

A single, transferable “ranked” voting system will be established, providing each crew president with the ability to cast a vote on behalf of the crew contingent present for the candidates of their choosing. Crew presidents (or their designees), along with the crew contingent, must be present at the meeting in person or virtually.

To be eligible for office, Venturers must be registered in the Patriots’ Path Council, not turn 21 before their term ends (i.e., May 31, 2023), and must have approval from their crew advisor. In addition, a “statement of intent” must be submitted via an online form.

We hope to have a good turnout at the May 10 meeting and we wish good luck to all who are running! For updates on the election process and other VOA endeavors, please follow our Instagram (@ppcvoa). All inquiries should be directed to Michael Conlon, the VOA’s advisor ([email protected]).
