** Elections will be held at 3 pm on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at William Chrisman **


Election Process:
Per the GKCOA By-Laws, only Regular members have voting rights and are eligible to hold office. As part of the GKCOA continuing membership requirements, dues paying members are designated into two classes: Regular and Probationary. To maintain your Regular member status you must have attended a minimum of 50% of the regular meetings for your sport. Multi-sport officials must have met this requirement in at least one sport.

If you would like to nominate yourself or another Regular member to serve on the Board of Directors, we ask that you please e-mail your nomination to treasurer@gkcoa.org on or before Sunday, March 31st. If you include a short summary/biography pertinent to your nomination we will post it on the website for review by members in advance of the bi-annual meeting. A photo can also be submitted if you so desire. Nominations will be accepted from the floor the day of the meeting as well. Each nominee will also be given an opportunity to make a speech during the meeting if they so desire.

Roles and Responsibilities:
There are nine elected positions – five officers and three at-large-directors. A duly elected officer or director shall maintain that position for a two (2) year term, subject to resignation or removal. The Board of Directors holds regular meetings each quarter.

The secretary shall have custody of the corporate seal of the GKCOA; and the secretary, or an assistant secretary, shall have authority to affix the same to any instrument requiring it, and when so affixed, it may be attested by his/her signature or by the signature of such assistant secretary.  The Board of Directors may give general authority to any other officer to affix the seal of the GKCOA and to attest the affixing by his/her signature.

The treasurer shall disburse the funds of the GKCOA as may be ordered by the Board of Directors, taking proper vouchers for such disbursements, and shall render to the president and to the Board of Directors, at its regular meetings, or when the Board of Directors so requires, an account of all his/her transactions as treasurer and of the financial condition of the GKCOA.

Jeremiah Timlick Bio:

I have been officiating for 16 years.  I have worked in the NAIA for 8 years.  I have been a mentor in the Suburban conference.  I was a mentor to the third year officials this past year in the GKCOA.  I have a passion for officiating and developing new officials.  I believe the time is now for getting new officials into our sport and growing our association.  I have had many great officials invest in me to make me better and I want to do the same.  I would be honored to serve our association if elected.
