Nominations are requested for MBGA director positions to be elected at the Annual General Meeting on May 3, 2015.

The board of directors will serve to manage the affairs of the MBGA for a one year term following the election. If you, or someone you know, would like to volunteer please e-mail nomination@mbgeocaching.ca with the name and contact information of the nominee. Permission must be obtained before nominating another person. Nominees should submit a statement of their qualifications before the AGM.

Nominations are accepted for any Manitoba resident, 18 years or older, who is an eligible voting member of the MBGA for at least thirty (30) days prior to the election. Nominations are open until midnight, April 19, 2015.

For further details on the election and operation of the MBGA please refer to the Election Policy and Bylaws. Reviewing past meeting minutes of the MBGA committee will also give you an idea of what to expect.

Nominees are running for a director position on the board. Once the group of directors has been elected, the board will elect officer positions. The MBGA Board meets in Winnipeg, but directors may reside anywhere in Manitoba. In the past we have had directors from Brandon, Flin Flon, and The Pas and have used Skype to videoconference.

As per the MBGA Election Policy, if there are insufficient nominees to fill the Board positions, a call for nominees from the floor shall occur
at the AGM

This is a big year for the MBGA. Between our 10th anniversary GeoVenture celebration in August and tourismdauphin's Country Legends mega-event in July, there is an increased need for directors this year to help plan and execute what we would like to do. Please consider letting your name stand for nomination.

The following cachers have allowed their names to stand for election.

Mike Neale (Glacier_ice)

My name is Mike Neale, aka Glacier_ice and even sometimes “Red Shirt Brian”. You may remember me from such Geocaches as ‘Jimmy "Two Cups" MACHiato’, 'Zach's Place' and 'Photo Edited'. I am currently serving my fifth term as MBGA President and my sixth year on the board of directors. There will be no vote bribery coming from me, so if you were looking for tips to solve Photo Edited in exchange for your vote, I am sorry, but you'll have to solve that one the old fashioned way. I will, however, continue to share stories, in my cache logs, about my three little Ice Cubes that sometimes go caching with me. I am willing to keep my name on the ballot for this year's election and continue to serve on the board of directors. I look forward to meeting the new geocachers who will be attending their first AGM this year. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Stacy Bosak (GroovyPinkSocks - GPS)

I have been geocaching since November of 2011, and currently have over 2000 finds. I have enjoyed many events such as assisting with geo venture, travelling to Churchill and the always anticipated "road trip".

I volunteer in many aspects of my children's lives, Basketball coach, Guiding leader, Cub Leader, Soccer convenor/coach and a PAC member along with many other places and events when help is needed.

I have set lofty goals in each of my caching years and enjoy the challenges. I have served 2 years on the MBGA board as a memeber at large and as Secretary, and I look forward to helping out another year.

Loida O'Keeffe (okeeffek)

I am a Winnipeg geocacher. My husband Kieran and I are team O'KeeffeK. I have a certificate and diploma from the University of Winnipeg, in Public Relations and Management. I am currently an outreach worker for the St. James school division. I look forward to bringing my experience and enthusiasm to the Manitoba Geocaching Association. I thank you for the nomination.

Josh Bernier (Stonagal)

My name is Josh Bernier. I have served two years on the MBGA Board as Tech & Statistics Coordinator and, for the past six months, as Vice-President. I am responsible for tracking monthly caching milestones, as well as keeping the board informed as to the number of caches in Manitoba and how many were being published each month. I also file the Association's annual returns of information with the provincial government. I have been an active geocacher since August 2012 and have grown to love the game and the community over the past few years.

Sandy Welbergen (swelbergen)

Teacher, procrastinator, fairweather geocacher. Loves footwear, scarves, and Chapstick, all essential for a successful geocaching jaunt, and has finally bought some awesome yellow wellies! Personally and unabashedly responsible for Skoki and icimondo, both of which are responsible for abating her fear of rain, spiders and tornadoes. Driven to teach school children all about sustainability, GPS, remote sensing, estimating, road safety, problem solving and responsible use of technology (i.e. GEOCACHING), just so she has an excuse to teach out-of-doors and escape from the classroom. "Um, yeah, we're on a field trip..."

Chris Balichowski (GeoJoeJaneCashaJace)

My name is Chris (GeoJoe), I found my first cache 05/07/06. I am a father of two (8yr old girl and 2 1/2 yr old boy). Geocaching is a huge part of my life and I hope to help the MBGA in anyway I can to promote this crazy addiction! Thank you for your consideration.

The Board shall consist of five to twelve Board Members.

As per the MBGA Election Policy, if there are insufficient nominees to fill the Board positions, a call for nominees from the floor shall occur at the AGM.
