OCPS Members: Special Election for President-Elect position

By Anthony Kassir

Dear OCPS Member,

At the recent OCPS Council meeting on May 2, 2017, the Council authorized a Special Election for the President-Elect position to take place this month. The President-Elect will hold office immediately following the election, and then assume the role of the President in May, 2018 for the 2018 to 2020 term.

As you may remember, I assumed the role of OCPS President when Richard Granese, M.D. stepped down on September 2, 2016. This left the President-Elect position open. The Nominating Committee had sought nominations for the position in November, 2016 and again in April, 2017.

I would like to acknowledge the hard work of the Nominating Committee members: Brenda Jensen, Nicolaas-John van Nieuwenhuysen, Michelle Park and Sonya Rasminsky. The Committee has dedicated a great deal of time in reviewing the candidate information and ensuring that the election process is fair and standardized.

On behalf of the Nominating Committee, I am pleased to inform you that we have two candidates on the Ballot. You may view the candidates’ Bio/Profiles here:

Given the need for an expedited election in time for the new officer to attend the President-Elect orientation at the APA meeting on May 20, 2017, we are using a new electronic voting system. This system has been proven to be secure, confidential and used by other District Branches with success.

An electronic ballot will be e-mailed to you shortly, within the next 1-2 days by May 10, 2017. Please vote as soon as you receive your ballot. Voting will be closed at 5:00 p.m., May 19, 2017.

Sincerely,
Yujuan Choy, M.D.
President
Orange County Psychiatric Society
