Executive Elections 2015: A Note from Melissa Gerlach, Elections Chair As a result of the STF 2015 Elections, the RPSTA had 5 openings to fill, with four positions being two year terms, and one of them being a 1 year term. The Elections Committee received 5 nominations for those positions. The Elections Committee was prepared to follow through with the election in order to determine who would receive the one year term, however one of the five nominees expressed an interest to take the one year term. After some discussion of this development, which would thus eliminate the need to continue with the process determining one versus two year terms for the acclaimed candidates, the Elections Committee decided to accept that individual’s offer. The result is that Ben Goby, Crystal McLaren, Andrew Pelling, and Jacqueline Roy have been acclaimed for a 2 year position (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2017), and Mike Markesteyn has been acclaimed for a 1 year position (July 1, 2015 – June 30, 2016). - By-election October 2015: Congratulations to Christopher Keyes, who was elected by Assembly for the remainder of the 2015-2016 year
