The membership of the Secular Party of America (SPoA) have unanimously voted to hold an interim election for the Office of President.
In view of the unexpected resignation of Troy Boyle, former President and co-creator of the National Atheist Party (now the SPoA), the Party seeks to fill the Office of President. “With our recent name change, we are now more than ever in need of a strong leader to be the face of our newly revamped organization” said VP of Operations James Klawon. The Office of President has been vacant since March 30, 2013, prompting the Executive Board to carry out an emergency election as voted on by the Party membership.
Among many other things, the President is the visible head of and spokesperson for the Party, unless delegated on an issue by issue basis to VPs. The President is also responsible for deciding non-critical issues that do not require an Executive Board decision such as diplomatic relations with other parties and ideological groups. Decisions made by the President are formed on the basis of input and recommendations from the Advisory Council, Executive Board, and all VPs. The President should be aware of the current progress of all campaigns and chapters and implements the strategies of all VPs after consultation and deliberation.
Active members of the Party that wish to be involved on a larger scale and are qualified for the Office of President (www.secularamerica.org/positions/national/president) are encouraged to submit their intent to run to the Executive Board (email@example.com) no later than 11:59pm EST August 31, 2013. Campaigns will run September-October and final elections will be held November 2, 2013. The Election Committee will announce election results Monday, November 11, 2013.
