Election Results for Executive Committee 2024-2025

IMPORTANT RESPONSE FROM THE ELECTION COMMITTEE CHAIR (11/07/2023)There are few emails requesting the release of Board results. The Election Committee would like to provide the following response.The current President has expressed his concern for the excess and illegal activities of some of the Board candidates. The Election Committee sought guidance from the Board because bylaws require any legal opinion can only be obtained by the Board. I wish to note that the Election Committee is not authorized to seek legal guidance. May I refer you to our Bylaws:5.1.1.3. The Board shall be responsible for all legal aspects of the Association. The Board sought legal opinion and the guidance received was not to announce the election results pending investigation. The Board has informed that they will undertake and manage the investigation and the associated DUE PROCESS.We have already communicated that ‘The results will be opened by the Secretary in my presence and that of the two Senior leaders of TAGDV, Dr. Ramachandran Sivakumar and Prof. Raj Mutharasan.'  No one else, including the other two Election Committee members and the Board/EC were exposed to any of the polling data.  The other two Election Committee members and the Board/EC were only informed of the results contemporaneously with the general membership.The Board results will be released in two weeks. There will be no further response from the Election Committee on the issue of announcement of Board results.Regards,T.
