II. Election of Chair and Secretary Pro Tem
A. Election of Chair Pro Tem: Edwards-Tiekert nominated Wilkinson.
Coleman nominated Reiter.
Heather Gray closed nominations. Candidates made short statements.
Volunteer tellers distributed and collected ballots from all 21 members
Detail: Gray's initial instructions were to put names on ballot and check
whether you wanted them as first or second, but procedure was corrected to
have candidates' names written on ballots so that a member's handwriting
would not void the secrecy of their ballot (Casenave), and the wording was
corrected to indicate that voters could vote for either, neither or both
candidates (Roberts). Second place votes matter if there's a tie (Reiter).
Further, if a tie resulted after counting second-place votes, straws would
be drawn (Edwards-Tiekert).
The tellers announced a count of 12 for Wilkinson, 9 for Reiter.
Wilkinson assumed the chair.
