It has been brought to our attention that we have been
remiss in not asking for NC approval (certification) of the Tabulation
Committee's report on the 2006 Steering Committee elections at the
Annual Meeting in Tucson. Per our bylaws (Proposal #222), following
the Steering Committee election, there is a 14 day period in which the
report can be challenged. Given no challenge, the NC is to approve
(certify) the results.

Following the 2006 election, the 14 day challenge period was
announced, with no challenges being brought forth during that period.
The SC election, therefore, was settled, with the exception of the
remaining house-keeping measure of having the National Committee vote
to certify it. Since there were no challenges, the results stood as
originally reported, and it seems everyone forgot to take the final
step toward certification. Therefore, as a housekeeping measure, the
Steering Committee is sending this long overdue proposal.


The GPUS National Committee hereby certifies the Tabluation
Committee's report on 2006 Steering Committee Election, and the
election results.


TIME FRAME: Retroactive to August, 2006.
