In accordance with our Fleet Constitution it’s time to start preparing for the 2019 Presidential election. The election will be held in August and the new President will officially take office on September 1st. If you would like to run, please email our Fleet Services Officer, Skippy, at skippy [at] ucip [dot] org. During August, he will:
- Formally introduce the candidates
- Distribute the ballots to all COs
- Tabulate the votes
- Present the results & announce the winner
Candidates are free to campaign anywhere and everywhere, to include UCIP’s Facebook page and our Discord server. They are permitted to announce their candidacies both before and after Skippy’s formal introductions. Candidates are highly encouraged to familiarize themselves with our Constitution, our history & traditions, and our members, if they are not already.
As I previously announced, while serving as your President has been the highlight of my career, I will not be seeking re-election. It’s time for me to move on and allow someone else to take the reigns. However, I will still continue to support UCIP in any way that I can.
With that, good luck to all of the candidates!
