VOTING IS OPEN THROUGH JUNE 30.
All current members of the BPA may vote regardless
of membership level—including all paid pre-registrants of the
2021 World Boardgaming Championships—except those purchasing one-day
Guest passes. Votes will be recorded in accordance with membership
status as outlined on the membership
page and are weighted appropriately by election officials. Those elected to the BPA Board will serve
three-year terms through the 2024 convention season. The new Board will be introduced during the BPA Annual Meeting on Tuesday,
July 27, at 3 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, PA. All BPA members are invited to attend.
In order to vote, use our electronic ballot. The e-mail you supply with your vote must match the e-mail we have on file for you. Each member may cast only one ballot, and may vote for up to three (3) individual candidates on that ballot. Multiple ballots from the same e-mail address will be disqualified. The final day to vote is June 30, 2021. In order for your vote to count, you must cast your ballot on the website no later than midnight ET on June 30, 2021.
The last day to join the BPA in order to be eligible to vote is June 30, the "Record Date". In order for the Vote to count, a quorum of ten percent (10%) of all members who have joined the BPA as of the Record Date must cast valid ballots on or before the Final Voting Date. We anticipate the Quorum will be approximately 110 voters.
NOTE: Any person may run for election as a Director.
Candidates must comply with the Board’s nomination rules in order
to be placed on the ballot. The three candidates receiving the most
votes will be elected.
||[ ] Andy Latto— My goal as a board member would be to recruit and retain great GM's, who are critical to WBC. I would aim to broaden communication between the Board and attendees — especially GMs (I am an 11-year GM.) I created a computer tool that many GMs use for sign-in, tournament scoring, and event reports. To support this tool, I talk with GMs about their tournaments to make sure it has the flexibility to meet the needs of their games’ players. This has helped me understand GM and player issues -- knowledge that is valuable to the Board.
||[ ] Andy Lewis—I would like to continue on the Board to ensure the composition of the Century and overall tournament offerings remains a good mix for all the different types of attendees. I bring a personal perspective as a wargamer of 45 years who participates yearly in wargame, sports, Euro and late night events. WBC has been our family vacation since our kids were born (24 years ago). I also represent the perspective of the vendors and publishers as a VP of GMT Games. I want to ensure that WBC remains the highlight of the year for my family and all gamers.
||[ ] Rebecca Roppolo—Since first attending as a Junior, the WBC has been a permanent feature of the year. Growing up in this community has been immensely influential and I am committed to ensuring the continued success of the WBC. My background in
program evaluation allows me to contribute to assessing needs and opportunities to improve the WBC experience for all. I bring a unique perspective and strong voice to the Board.
||[ ] Peter Stein—I've been playing games like Strat-O-Matic, Landslide, and Russian Campaign for years. I went to Avaloncon 1993 not knowing anyone and everything has changed. Now I'd like to repay the hobby for that life changing event. In real life, I've worked in accounting for over 30 years so I havea solid business background. I've served as Treasurer and President for several organizations including Columbus Area Boardgaming Society. I've also helped run conventions like Buckeye Game Fest and the Board Room at Origins. I think my experiences would make me a valuable member of the Board.
