From Section II.B of the SLSA Constitution:

Please read the following relevant extract from our Constitution regarding the application requirements and process:

2.2. SLSA Director Eligibility

Any individual who is a current member of SLSA and who is an eligible voter is eligible to hold office as a Director of the SLSA Board, within the following rule(s):

2.2.1. Not more than two (2) representatives from

2.2.1.1 the same surf team (as defined in section 1.5.8 )

2.2.1.2 the same surf product vendor company (product developers, not affiliate sellers)

2.2.1.3 the same surf sim(s) ownership group (sim owners, not sim renters) shall be Directors of the SLSA Board at any single time.

Candidates will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis for this election condition. (e.g Continuing Director A is Surf Team X, Candidate B and Candidate C are also Surf Team X, then Candidate B would be accepted as a nominee if their application was received first, Candidate C’s nomination would not be accepted)


2.2.1.4 A current SLSA member who is not an eligible voter may petition the board for the privilege of running for a Director seat. Their petition must state why their candidacy would be a benefit to the SLSA. If the board unanimously agrees that it is in the best interest of the SLSA the eligible voter requirement may be waived. This will be on a case-by-case basis and does not imply an endorsement of the particular candidate.

2.2.2. General Election Candidates shall apply in writing to all members of the standing board of directors (via note-card, IM’s are not admissible) not more than 21 days and not less than 14 days prior to an election. Candidate Applications must state their willingness and ability to serve their full 6 month term and must also state any team, product or Sim affiliations as defined in 2.2.1.1 through 2.2.1.3.
