Call for candidates to take over as Chair
In view of the obvious lack of activity in this Chapter, we have just admitted all the MCAA members who had applied to join the Chapter and who were waiting for admission. There are now 44 members of the Chapter.
We invite any Chapter member interested in taking on the role of Chapter Chair to put their name forward as candidate by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (preferably with a copy to MCAA Vice-Chair Mostafa Moonir Shawrav = email@example.com) by the 15th March 2019. We will then organise an on-line election for the Chapter members to decide on their next Chair. If there is only one candidate, there will be no election, and the MCAA Board is likely to nominate the sole candidate as Chair. If there are no candidates, it seems likely that the Chapter will have to be closed down.
Please note that the position of Chair is not just an honorary role, but requires some serious work to plan and organise the activities of the Chapter - so you should only put yourself forward as a candidate if you are genuinely prepared to put in the effort to revive the Chapter and take the lead in making it successful (in particular by mobilising other Chapter members to share the workload!).
