    Bob, Do I understand correctly that a club leader is the only one that can cast their vote for the USAA BOD JOAD grassroots director?"

    Thanks,

    NO
    One eligible individual USAA/NAA member can cast only one single solitary vote.
    (NO club votes)

    Yes,
    I have heard from many, non club leader, JOAD parents and volutneers that would like to take part in the selection of the USAA JOAD BOD election and are disappointed that they are not eligible to vote for the JOAD BOD member.

    It will be up the new USAA BOD to address furture voting issue after this election.

    Perhaps JOAD clubs could have a meeting to vote for whom the club director/leader will vote for. However, there is very little time to do this and get the ballot postmarked in time.

    Right on Steve.
    Some clubs use email to great effect.
    Many clubs will only need to discuss what the club goals are and empower the leader to vote appropriately.

    Bob, I am confused.

    In the document that you posted it states:
    A registered JOAD Club’s designated leader can cast his/her single vote for the JOAD Director or another
    category in which he/she is eligible to vote. Only a qualified member is eligible to vote, not clubs. As we all know, JOAD Clubs are made up of many people ie: athletes, parents, coaches, judges and others. So how do these various people find representation on the new Board if they cannot all vote for the JOAD Director?
    1. Voters must be at least 18 years of age and be a USA Archery member for at least 60 days prior to the election.
    2. Members who are listed as current Judges may decide to vote for the Judge Director or the At Large Director.
    3. Members who are listed as Level 2, 3, and 4 Instructor/Coaches may decide to vote for the Coach Director or the At Large Director.
    4. Other Members can vote for the At Large Director.
    5. Members who are eligible to vote in multiple categories must decide which category they choose to cast their single vote.

    So members of JOAD clubs can only vote for the AT Large Director.
    So the JOAD Club’s designated leader, who will most likely be a Coach, has to choose which group they want to vote in.
    So how many people do we expect to vote in this group?

    For JOAD does it have to be someone who is designated as the JOAD leader on the NAA paper work?
    Just trying to figure this out?

    Just trying to figure this out?
    Members can vote in whichever category they are eligible to vote in but only vote one time for one single candidate in this 2007 election.
    In other words eligible members can make one single X mark on the ballot.
    Clubs don’t vote, only individual eligible members vote.
    But don’t take my word for it, review the bylaws for more reliable answer.

    In the first question what "group" are you referring too?

    As for who your clubs leader is, I don’t know how fast your club can act to decide to change the club leader, have it accepted by USAA and still cast a eligible vote that will be counted by the USOC Audit Staff.
    I suggest that you check with the USAA staff to verify who is eligible to vote on behalf of the JOAD club as its designated individual member as the individual single vote.

    As for just trying to figure it out, we all are doing our best to understand the new election process.

    I think most people understand what is being printed, they just can’t believe it.
    Again, I have heard from many parents that would like to vote for the JOAD grassroots BOD representative.
    Currently the JOAD grassroots voting is on a JOAD Club by JOAD Club basis with the JOAD Club Director/Leader eligible to cast a single vote for one single candidate one time as an eligible individual member.
    A club with three members has the same single JOAD Grassroots representative BOD vote by its designated individual member director/leader as a club with 100 members and their designated individual member director/leader.

    I don’t recall anyone discussing the issue last year when the bylaws were being offered for review.
    Again, it will be up to the new BOD to address any issues with election process for next time.
    This time, it is what it is.

    From what I read, the Collegiate Grassroots BOD representative is elected in a similar fashion.
    The At Large is an important election because most of the membership will be voting for the At Large BOD.
    Whew!

    I think that confusion surrounding the voting is the only thing that is clear Steve. As a JOAD coach, I'm more involved than most and this level of confusion will only lead to what I posted in a different thread.
    What concerns me is the potential to have many, many ballots invalidated because more than one selection was made.
    In voting booths across the nation, voters vote for all government offices and local referenda. We see a see a slate of candidates for an open position and vote. I can see many people casting a vote for all positions.
    Are the voting instructions on the ballot, yes. Are the voting instructions on the letter, yes. Will there be confusion, most definitely.

    The new BOD will be the group to address election issues for future elections.
    Once we have one election under the new process under our belts, perhaps the changes will be better understood.
    In the mean time, I encourage the JOAD Club leaders to vote one single time in a single membership eligible category they are eligible to vote in.

    Lets see Darrell is our club president and I am the CEO and my wife is the S-T. we are all coaches. If we all vote as coaches can we designate another member of our club to vote on behalf of the cincinnati Junior Olympians for the JOAD director?
