Elections - Open Positions
The Master Executive Council (MEC) is comprised of 16 locally-elected Presidents and three MEC Officers. The Local Executive Council Presidents (LECP) make up the voting body of the MEC. Positions are elected by a simple majority, with each LECP casting one vote for each position.
Candidates must be active Members in good standing, and should submit a resume or a signed “Willingness to Serve” statement, preferably fifteen days prior to the election date. Willingness to Serve Statements should not include personal information or employment history as they will be posted on the United MEC website for viewing by the Membership. Resume information, if desired, should be in a separate document. Interested candidates are encouraged, but not required, to give an in-person interview at the MEC meeting where the elections will be conducted. Any candidate who wishes to appear for an interview must do so at their personal expense.
