Ken Martin Elected IAPE Secretary
On May 1, 2006, the IAPE Election Committee posted a notice of election on the IAPE website and solicited nominations for the vacant union position of Secretary. The nomination period has now closed. The committee has received one nomination and has accepted that nomination.
The Election Committee has declared Ken Martin elected to the position of IAPE Secretary. Ken is a past IAPE vice-president and is currently Grievance Committee Chair, a role he will continue to fill as he serves as Union Secretary.
The May 1st election notice also contained a proposal to amend the union's bylaws. Since there will be no need for an election for the position of secretary, the bylaws amendment vote will be postponed until the next IAPE election or ratification.
