It seems crazy that on day one in an organization that the new partner would be nominating in elections. Would a policy stating that you have to be a partner for 30 days before nominatong in an election be unconstitutional? Have you ever seen anyone have a tension with this? How has it been dealt with?
I as Lead Link suggested that maybe for purposes of the election consider the new partner as a minor allocation and is excluded. Our Secretary says that is a very slippery slope of interpretation of the Constitution.
Our Rep Link and trainer came to our last elections having decided that our two new partners that had been with us for less than a week not participate in the nomination process.
