The 2021 Alumni Board Election
The 2021 ORU Alumni Association Board of Directors election begins on February 1. All ORU graduates are encouraged to vote for the candidates of their choice.
The election will end at 11:59 p.m. Central Time on February 28.
By now, graduates should have received an e-mail from ElectionBuddy with a link to the ballot. Each link is unique to a specific graduate, so do not forward your e-mail to another graduate. If you did not receive your ballot, please check your spam folders. If you are still unable to locate your ballot, please call the Alumni Relations team at 918.495.6610 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to update your contact information and request a link to the ballot.
In this election, there are openings in three class segments and in the At Large segment. And this year, for the first time, graduates who live outside of the U.S. are going to be voting for a Global Director. Previously, this was an appointed position on the Alumni Board. The Global Director seat was created to bring a global perspective to the board, and to serve as a focal point for global ORU alumni feedback on Alumni Association initiatives and activities.
Also for the first time, 2020 graduates will vote for a director to represent them in the all-new Segment 6, which will encompass the classes of 2020 through 2029.
Segment 1 (1968-1979): 1 seat
Candidates: Tim Cameron*, Mary Harris, Dr. Steven Henderson
Segment 3 (1990-1999): 1 seat
Candidates: Adrian Blanco, Brent Lucy, Thomas Shaughnessy*
Segment 6 (2020-2029): 1 seat
Candidates: Nathan Brandt, Robert Grubbs, David Wolfer
At Large (all classes): 2 seats
Candidates: Sam Chacko, Daniel Craig, Jordan Crandall, Kevin Corwin, Michael Gimotty*, Lori Weber
Global Director: 1 seat
Candidates: Christopher Bozek, Robert Kusnadi, John Suan*
Only alumni who graduated in a particular class segment (e.g., Segment 1, 1968-79) may vote for a director in that segment. All graduates may vote for At Large directors. Please note: If you earned more than one degree at ORU, you will vote in the class segment in which you received your first ORU degree. New directors will begin serving at the Spring 2021 board meeting. To read more about the role of the Alumni Board at ORU, click here.
