Dear Members of the Alumni Association,
The Board of Directors has completed its deliberations on the two motions that were submitted for its
consideration. The following is the report issued by Arturo Lopez, secretary of the Board.
New Date of Election General Meeting
Due to current Covid conditions, the Board has determined that it is in the best interest of the Alumni
Association membership that the alumni meeting and election will be held on March 9, 2022. Due to Ash
Wednesday falling on the first Wednesday in March (March 2, 2022), the alumni meeting and election has been
rescheduled to Wednesday, March 9, 2022 at 7:00 pm.
After careful consideration of the motions presented by the Cathedral Alumni Association, the Board of
Directors has approved the following motions as amended by the board.
Therefore, it is proposed that in the upcoming 2022 Election, members should be permitted to pay their dues
prior to or on the day of the 2022 Election, so they may cast their ballots for Candidates. Provided that:
- Members who choose to pay online must do so by midnight March 6, 2022 via the Cathedral Alumni
- Members who choose to pay in person at the Cathedral High School Alumni meeting on March 9, 2022 and
who desire to vote at that meeting must pay their annual dues between the hours of 5:30 pm and 7:00 pm only.
- Any member who wishes to pay his dues on March 9th after 7:00 pm, will be able to do so but will not be
eligible to vote in the 2022 election. Motion passed 6-0.
Whereas there are members who have underlying medical conditions and it is not appropriate for them to be in a
large group setting to cast their vote in person the night of the election.
Be it resolved that for the March 9, 2022 election paid members may drop off their secret ballot in person in the
Development Office on Thursday and Friday, March 10th and 11th during regular business hours (8:30am –
3:30pm). Ballots cannot be mailed or emailed. Ballots can only be dropped off by the person who is casting his
vote as a paid member of the Alumni Association.
Be it further resolved that the final tally will be announced by the election committee on Monday, March 14th by
7:00 pm. The election results will be posted on the Alumni Association website and emailed to the association
members. Motion passed 7-0.
These procedures are applicable to the Cathedral Alumni Association election of officers for the 2022 election
only. They will not be effective in any future years.
